Ben and I are currently in a town about 1 hour south of Barcelona on the coast.....Tarragona! We came here mainly to fuel my obsession with Roman history (there are lots of ruins here) but it turned out to have a lot more to offer as well. We have been here two days now and leave tommorow. I went swimming in the med today and it was soooo good. The beaches are nothing compared to what we have in Oz but the water is so nice and the perfect temperature. The best thing about the beach today was that when you are in the water swimming you look back towards the town and there is a Roman amphitheatre right on the beach! So cool! We are finally getting into holiday mode and taking things slowly. Its great for that here as there are heaps of hidden plazas to enjoy a beer in the sun, or the shade. We have been having great fun just wandering through the old medieval streets finding new plazas and admiring the architecture. There is a healthy bar scene here too and we are off for tapas tonight!
