While Toulouse, France was a whirlwind two day trip, Tarragona was much the same yet more. This time it was spent with wonderful newly made friends… or rather I should say, friends we finally met in person. Marta could very well be one of my daughters (I do seem to collect a lot of them and I have grown to love each one), and Salvador being the same age as our own son-in-law. Another extended family, how blessed we are!!!
Tarragona: wow, very beautiful city on the Mediterranean sea. I would have loved to have walked in this sea once more, the last time being in Tunisia, but alas, time-wise, it just didn’t work out for such luxury. Maybe I will be granted this wish sometime in the future. 😉 All in all, the city did not leave you hungry for things to behold or discoveries to explore. There are many Roman ruins scattered within the city. Most seem to be in the midst of restoration and in some instances restoration which appeared to be on hold. However, I imagine as funding is given the will be able to continue the restorative work of these magnificent ruins. Still, it provided a copious amount of character and ambiance to the small boutiques and restaurants which line the streets, as well as becoming part of apartment buildings… the old mixed with the new. One place we dined at with our new friends was similar to a cave. The walls and ceiling were the ruins of old while the floor, partially, was new. It created a divine and intimate place to have our final supper. So, enjoy the photos and the journey. Buon dia! Oh… one other thing. Catalunya is known for making human towers, in fact they hold competitions and Tarragona has the 2nd best club of climbers in Spain. Pictures to come.
