Let the adventure begin – On the road to Spain

Spending a fun day in Cadaqués.

Hola Costa Live Readers!

My name is Hannah, I‘m from Berlin and I arrived one week ago in wonderful spain to work as a trainee for Costa Live until october.Traveling is always exiting- you gonna meet diffrent people and experience nice, funny and also weird situations. To keep you entertained, I‘m gonna write about a few of my adventures every week. My first day abroad was already  surprising…

My first day in beautiful Cadaqués

Okay, first I have to admit, that my journey to Spain wasn‘t really relaxed. My arms were sore from carring my baggage from the fifth floor down to the street, taking the Berlin tube in hot summer isn‘t the most comfortable thing and I almost missed my flight, because the departure time on my ticket was wrong. But, what the heck – I‘m gonna spend three whole months in one of my favourite countrys, so it‘s gonna be worth it.
It still feels like a dream the next day. I‘m passing olive plantations and palms trees on my way to Cadaqués, the smell of summer and sun is in the wind. Reality, please don‘t come back!

Famous surrealist Dali lived in Cadaqués.

Not without a reason has surrealist Dali made Cadaqués his home. This little charming, dreamy place makes me fall in love immediately (that‘s probably not the last time, that I‘m going to say this). White houses are sticking to the hillslopes of the pyrenees like bird‘s nests. The main street is running right next to the ocean, oleanders are blooming at the roadside, the smell of salty water and fresh grilled fish is in the wind.
It‘s already time for siesta (I love the spanish people for taking a break every afernoon without any bad consience) and I‘m keen to try some spanish delicacys in one of the numberless cafés and restaurants at the beach. I‘m going for salad with goat cheese and olives, Carpaccio de bacalao and all kinds of seafood – it immediately reminds me, why I‘ve always been loving the spanish cuisine.

Cadaqués is beautiful and charming.

Afterwards, I‘m taking a stroll trough the narrow streets. Plants are decorating the walls and balconys, where people are sitting to escape the midday heat. I‘m not only loving this place already, I don‘t wanna leave it anymore. Eventually the panoramic view of Cap de Creus is alluring me and I‘m moving on.It takes a little, until I‘m getting used to the wind up here, I‘m almost falling of the cliffs- but the view is absolutely spectacular.
Could my journey have started any better? I don‘t think so.
At the end of the day, I‘m lying in my bed, satisfied and happy, far away from the dull routine of everyday life.
