In Sitges

LIFE IN ______ IS BETTER
THAN ANYTHING
THEY GOT IN HERE

 

At forty-ish minutes away from Barcelona on a train that costs 4,20€ per person, Sitges is the summer destination which, after one and a half years living in Spain, is almost a sin the fact that I had not visited yet. Between work, rainy days and thesis to be delivered, there was always a reason for us to cancel our weekend at the town by the sea.

Of course, this isn’t the Caribbean, not even close, but with quiet beaches, local wine and food (of which we have no photos because on this trip we almost even ate our plates) and Barcelona just around the corner, this is one of tourists’ and locals favorite spot for a getaway. So, after a year and a half, thousands of excuses, rainy days and an unexpected cancellation from our airbnb host, at least, Sitges.

A tan solo aproximadamente cuarenta minutos de Barcelona en un tren que cuesta 4,20€ por persona, Sitges es un destino veraniego que, con más de un año y medio viviendo en España, es casi un pecado que no hubiese visitado antes. Entre trabajos, días de lluvia y tesis que entregar, por alguna razón siempre terminábamos postergando un fin de semana merecido en el pueblo costero.

No es el Caribe ni nada similar, pero con playas tranquilas, comida y vino local (de la cual no hay fotos porque en este viaje hemos devorado hasta la mesa) y Barcelona a la vuelta de la esquina, es el destino local de muchos turistas y locales. Así que, después de un año y medio, miles de excusas, días de lluvia y una cancelación inesperada de nuestro airbnb, he aquí por fin Sitges.

Because I ended up packing at the last minute (nothing to be surprised, I almost think it’s bad luck if I don’t start packing two hours before) I chose a few of my most versatile and lightweight pieces I had. To be honest, packing for the beach is a no-brainer: toes at the air, cotton garments, bare legs, at least three different sunglasses and a big beach bag of which you won’t have to worry about carrying a lot, ’cause you will be spending most of the day lying at the sand watching the day go by, as it should be on a beach getaway. Como terminé empacando a última hora (no es de extrañarse, ya es de mala suerte si no termino empacando dos horas antes) opté por llevar las prendas más ligeras y versátiles que tenía. Para ser honesta, empacar para la playa no tiene ciencia: pies al aire,  prendas de algodón, piernas a la vista, al menos tres pares de gafas de sol y una gran bolsa de playa de la cual no te tendrás que preocupar por cargar mucho mientras estés tirada en la arena viendo el día pasar, como debe ser en una escapada playera.

  4. I love Sitges and I have a very special reason for it — that’s where my now-husband proposed to me 3 years ago :) Back at that time I wouldn’t even dream that one day I could live in Barcelona, but… well, it has just happened! I moved here two months ago, and I’m going to spend here at least 3 years. I really enjoy your blog, the way you capture the aura of places and tastes of Barcelona is amazing. This year I began writing my own blog about museums, exhibitions, and museum education (I am an Art Curator and Art Educator). Feel more than welcome to visit it: http://yourmuseumassistant.com !
    All the best,
    Olga

I hope you enjoy your time in Barcelona and that you love the city as much as I do, it’s such a beautiful yet quite, charming city :). All the best to you! xx

      PS. My boyfriend totally loves your blog and I like it a lot as well, we want to visit so many places in Barcelona now ;)
