Tarragona and Barcelona

I was a bit exhausted as I prepared my bag on Thursday night. I even slept throughout the trip to Barcelona.
These were even my first words when my friend Neki asked me how I was. "Exhausted". But that was not to last!

She had the best potion for that: a whole day spent chatting, visiting a fabrics shop and a patchwork shop (small but a quilter dream!) one Vermouth drunken lazily, then another one, a nice lunch. My mojo had returned before we left the first shop. I was in great shape by the end of the afternoon!
This day was followed by two more with my daughter Amandine. We first pampered ourselves in Barcelona, with a well deserved pedicure, and some shopping, then a nice evening celebrating one of her friends's birthday.
The next day saw us on the train to Tarragona, the Roman ruins and the beach.
A weekend of friendship,  mother-daughter love, sea and sun. That should take me until the end of August.

I hope your weekend was as nice as mine.

Darn! That would be a hard act to follow! I'm glad your mojo has returned. Can we look forward to some shoe posts next? ;)

Always good to be rejuvenated -- so glad you got to do it with wonderful family and food and sights, too!

Sounds like a fantastic weekend. Your trips always sound like heaven to me - you do what you like, relaxed and easy - mine are all about racing around, dragging kids with us. I know my time for easy travel will come one day, until then I will enjoy yours!

My weekend was nice but not as adventuresome as yours was. Your weekend sounds like one you would love to repeat. I would too. ;)
