Tossa de Mar, Catalonia, Spain
A drive up the slow coast route of the fabulously scenic wild coast of Spain was one of the things I just had to do in our 4 days on the Costa Brava. A quick stop at Tossa de Mar with it’s pretty, long crescent beach and we were off for the most scenic part of the drive up from Barcelona – the route between Tossa de Mar and San Feliu de Guixols.
We weren’t the only ones driving and stopping at the turnouts along the scenic route, we ended up following an English tour bus to every single stop. That chafed a little at first but then we started having fun with being stuck behind the huge bus, watching as the driver took the entire road as he navigated the narrow road and tight turns. Those cars coming the opposite way didn’t have a chance as they stopped and hugged the road as close to the mountainside they could get. At one of the view points we had a chance to talk to the driver, he’d been driving the group all the way from England for the past week. Now friends, we cheerily waved at the driver and all the passengers and…jumped in the car and zipped off before they could all get back on the bus.
