Thursday 25th - Monday 29th May 2017
A long weekend in Sitges, near Barcelona (with a night in Paris on the way there) for Leon's 40th birthday.
Thursday 25th May 2017
Got the Eurostar after work (so handy from my new office!) and met up with Benoit in Paris for the evening so I could get an earlier train to Barcelona the next morning.
Paris to Sitges
Friday 26th May 2017
Breakfast at the ever spectacular Train Bleu before getting the TGV down to Barcelona. Took a local train from there down to Sitges, only about half an hour away, and then had a bit of time to myself to explore the town before meeting the others. Went to the villa for some Veuve Clicquot (sabraged of course) before heading back into town for a fittingly Spanish late dinner of paella, then a bar and finally a moonlit stroll along the shore back to my hotel.
Saturday in Sitges
Saturday 27th May 2017
Slept in late and slobbed around at my hotel in the morning. In the afternoon I went and joined the others for a tour of a cava winery. Went back to my hotel for a bit more after that and persuaded the others to come down to the harbour for dinner, where there was a really nice little street of restaurants. Back to the villa for post dinner drinks.
Sunday in Sitges
Sunday 28th May 2017
I had lunch down by the harbour before heading up to the villa to join the others for one long party from the afternoon into the small hours of the morning. Oh and I finally went in the pool. In a suit.
