It felt like just another day in paradise today with blue skies, almost perfect temperatures and not a bother around.

Even the ‘hole in the wall’ looked like the flight deck of an A380. It offered withdrawals in 16 languages, worked contact-less, and had a build-in video camera to record who was taking the money.

We found out that Blanes is part of the Republic of Catalunya. And above all, Pádraig was really really happy. Being outside most of the day, eating all this wonderful food and trying out different kinds of drinks – we’ll miss it.

Because today was our last day. We’ll have to get up again in the middle of the night to catch a very early bus that will carry us over more than two hours to the airport. We’ll be part of what they call in Spain, following Semana Santa, ‘operación retorno’.
