the route from barcelona through mataros and into girona hugs the coast and follows a fairly congested road with little to no shoulder. the weather was excellent though- sunshine day. blue skies. beach views. flat. we slept off the road in a dog park the first night out of barcelona. i know, it might sound odd, but it was quite cozy, nestled next to a bamboo fence, under some tall trees, near a quiet ambulance station. the emtoe played tennis in the middle of the night.

onward to girona was interesting. the road wound into some low forest mountain hills, passing fields and fields of freshly tilled soil. beautiful farmland. pretty remote. amidst this, we began seeing dressed up, pretty saucy looking ladies here and there, at the edge of a forest, in a plastic chair. no houses nearby, nothing. sitting in plastic chairs in the middle of farm field roads, really- in the middle of nowhere. we were pretty puzzled, but later realized they were working.

girona- an old enat historic town, split by a river. tucked behind a high mountain, we thought we“d never lay eyes on it. because of its“tuck behind the mountain, the temperature dropped sevėrely. we found a nice campspot over a bridge, along the river, behind a fence, and behind a hospitaloe helicopter landing pad. no emergencies in the middle of the night though- so no helicopter action. in the morning, the sounds of a hot air baloon overhead woke us up. it was lovely. the tent was frozen and frosty.
