Um... Spain?... Day 9 and 10 - Tavernes

Remember how I went to Spain? Oh yeah, probably not, because it was almost a year ago and yet I still haven't finished putting the pictures on my blog. But I finally got the doo-hickey that I needed to easily upload pics onto my computer, so I can finish my Spain blogging. Yay! In case you missed the first 8 days, please feel free to peruse them. (Warning: Be prepared for lots of pictures if you do. They are good ones, though, I promise.)

Day 1: Madrid
Day 2: Madrid
Day 3: Toledo
Day 4 & 5: Madrid-Barcelona
Day 6: Barcelona
Day 7: Barcelona
Day 8: Barcelona

On day 9 Adriana and I traveleved from Barcelona to Tavernes de Valldigna, a little beach town where Adriana's family spends their summers (lucky them!) We stayed in their lovely apartment with the most amazing views:

The beach was about 3 blocks away, so we spent the next day lounging on it. I had joked earlier in the trip that I was going to get nicknamed La Blanquita (little white girl) and then her aunt actually called me that! It was pretty hilarious.

We shared delicious meals with her extended family and watched the sunset while in the pool. Then we went with her cousin to the adorable little outdoor theater - the major exitement in their tiny beach town. We watched The Hangover in Spanish; luckily there was a lot of physical comedy in the movie, but I was still mostly lost. :)

It was an incredibly relaxing and enjoyable couple of days!
