Sitges, Spain - May 6-8, 2012
Many people have warned us of Sitges' charms: Coved beaches snuggled along the shore, a quaint little town with many narrow, pedestrian-only streets and the warmth of the Mediterranean. But they didn't warn us of the crowds--and this is off season!
So just a few notes on Sitges:
1) If you want to start a business, open up a high quality caravan park in Sitges--there is none to be found. Two campgrounds, each with two stars and neither very attractive. Although ours, El Garrofer, has 10 or so full hook-up sites making it livable as visiting the shower block was out of the question.
2) Sitges, even in the off season, is crowded on the weekends. Plus, it doesn't take a lot of people to make the narrow streets feel tiny.
3) The town embraces everyone; if enjoying diversity is not on your agenda then you might want to try another spot. (We, of course, loved it.)
All in all it was a nice stop but I am anxious to get to the Pyrenees and into my hiking boots. Not to mention all the campgrounds we have read about note, "exc. fishing." We are headed up today!
