Spain - Day 1

It's a four and a half hour trip to Fuegeres, but with a stop in Avignon to leave a drill for repair, a lunch and pipi stop, and a coffee and pipi stop, we made it in six.

The Trave is a nice hotel, decorated with thought and very clean.  Good restaurant (bad lighting) with properly trained waiters!  Such a pleasure!  Hot rolls, too; I can't remember the last time I had those.  We had Menu No. 1: crudites and charcuterie, paella and melon (too early) for dessert.  Nice house wine.  We're still in the North, so most people speak French as well as Catalan and Spanish and some English.  We are  carrying our Spanish dictionary and do try.

Dogs won't eat, of course.  Little ingrates, after all the walks they got.


  1. I hope you get some warm weather, it has been wet and cold here over Easter.

  2. You are in Spain, I just got back from Chicago. Spain seems so much more....exotic! Wave to my brother if you are within waving distance of barcelona, wouldja? I was there last in...2002 or 2003, what a great city and the food is fantastic. Have a great time!

  3. Ah good some food news:-)Happy 28th Anniversary x Celticseahorse
