„Yo-ho, yo-ho a pirates life for me“ Jack’s Sparrow was humming with a wild grin on his face as he puts out to sea with his beloved ship. Plundering, capturing, throwing all manners overboard and knocking back barrels of rum… Oh, the sweet life of a pirate!

From bay to bay on the Costa Brava

Mediterranean Sea – The beautiful Costa Brava stretches from the north of Barcelona to the French border and reaches from the foothills of the Pyrenees near Portbou to the Tordera river estuary near Blanes.
