Weekend trips from Barcelona.
Valencia is a town about three hours south, via train. It was both incredible and meh. The latter in that once off the beaten path, everything looks like Franco still rules. But the beaches are spectacular, and the food is … well, words cannot describe. The food alone makes this a destination. And the city center is wonderful to explore. We truly enjoyed our few days here and will be back. Especially for the paella. 🙂
Amsterdam was a side trip after visiting friends in Germany. We had never been, and loved it. The weather was kinda bi-polar. First day was gray and dismal. Other days bright and hot. But the town itself was a blast. I loved the bicycles, the architecture, and the vibe. We will be back here as well.
Tossa De Mar was the last weekend visit. Nature at its finest. Mountainous cliffs right over pebbled beaches. We loved it, and want to explore all of Costa Brava.
Have you seen the YouTube Channel? No? Really? Because that’s what this site is designed for, to drive you over there. So … what are you waiting for? 🙂 Seriously, The Pirate Wanderer is centering around videos, and what better place than YouTube to host our world. Please head over, subscribe, and comment away. We can’t wait to see you over there!
For the most part, we’ve got this financially (especially if you buy our book!). But, and there’s always a but, a little help won’t be turned away. If you enjoy what you see and want to help out, any donation would be most appreciated.
And while you’re at it, perhaps head over to Amazon and pick up my new novel: Letters To A Dead Uncle. On the shelves and in the Kindle Store. It’s a travel novel, of sorts. Just me writing to my dearly departed Uncle Jimmy about my latest exploits. More details on the home page!
