Friday 13 May … Montserrat to Sitges

Cerveza por favor

A lovely night stay at the mountain … basic breakfast in the cafeteria included in our accommodation it opens at 8.30am. 

I was feeling a bit rubbish this morning… Johnny’s ghastly red wine he bought a bottle a few nights ago. It’s hard to get an early start; however it is fun ‘people watching’ the population has increased 10 fold in half an hour.  Crowds appearing from nowhere, individuals of all ages with walking sticks and backpacks … today’s clear skies prove a good day of hiking among the many trails the area provides. One young man had climbing ropes … eek I hope he knows what he’s doing. We took the train only 100m from our hostel (where should have finished yesterday) the views from the train were breathtaking much better than the chairlift.

We alighted at Martorell to ride to Sitges … we won’t talk about garmin. The ride was through industrial towns, however the centres were very leafy with manicured gardens and clean road … most of all very good cycleways. We were stop start as I navigated with my mobile in my handlebar bag.

We stopped for a very unhealthy lunch in Sant Boi … John order a beer, when a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice appeared his face was aghast, I on the other hand tried to hide the smile. Time to learn some Spanish … cerveza por favor (beer please) haha.

Travelling with only one water bottle which we are sharing today … John lost his … we came to the coast … lovely beaches then above us the cliffs … yes we have to go up there!

We were out of water and a beach bar insisted we couldn’t have tap water so 2€ later a 500ml of water was purchased … we pay less for a beer and bought a 1ltr from the supermarket for 0.65€ they saw us coming … I’ve been drinking tap water since I’ve been here. You have to laugh!

So up over the cliffs … it just gets better … views are breathtaking and we are able to stop intermittently to take pics and admire the views … 1.5 hrs later our hill climbing is over and we are in Sitges, the beach actually has some swimmers … our quaint hotel room is lovely small balcony overlooking the street but looking like a Chinese laundry at the moment.

Good news, John has called the bank and all is good the fraud has been stopped. It was done through Perth and other attempts had been made.

A lovely walk to the beach to see the sun setting … a beautiful evening strolling on the beachfront and to the church by the sea. It’s 9pm and the restaurant are just starting to get busy as we are looking for a place to eat. It’s Italian tonight a lovely seafood pasta.

What a lovely town this is … such a shame we leave tomorrow.
