We decided to have a day offline and it was lovely!

We went away for the weekend and stayed in a town called Tamariu in Gerona, just an hour and a half by car from our house in Barcelona.

We got up at the crack of dawn (very early in the morning) and went down to the beach to see the sunrise.

The water was crystal clear and blue, we would have swum if it hadn’t been so cold! Not even the fish were awake at that time of the day 🙂

Then we got back to the apartment, we put our trainers (zapatillas de deporte) on and went running. We look very sleepy!

We had a well deserved breakfast with toast, biscuits, mango, figs, cereals and yogurt. That pumpkin was for later on, as it was Halloween that night.

We had time to take some stupid photos as well!

The homeless cats in this town are very well fed (bien alimentados)! Look at this little fury ball (bola peluda).

Back in the apartment we cooked some lunch, had tea and more biscuits and we read some books that the owner had left on the self. Most of them were horror books and that night was Halloween, a bit scary already!

And to end the day we went to scare the locals! However Phillip was chased by some children who were trying to remove his mask and cape! Quite brave children I would say, because he didn’t look like someone with good intentions :-0

Isabel was told by the children: “You are not scary, do you know that?” Quite cheeky (descarado, atrevido) children!

Overall it was a great day and we did not miss the internet at all! We’ll definetely have more days like this one.
