A Spanish Villa for a Week.
Saturday, September 18th, 2004: Calonge, Spain
Valencia to Calonge: 457 kilometres
The roundabout outside our hotel takes us right to the highway. Valencia was a sleep over stop for us, breaking our 1000 kilometre trip from Granada to Colonge. We are already on the outskirts of Valencia and in no time at all we are continuing our trek towards Calonge and our rental for the next week. Terraced Valencia orange groves abound as the road takes us north. So green compared to the south. Our weather remains consistent: sunny and warm.
David and Kathryn, our former next door neighbours from Toronto, are waiting for us at our predetermined rendezvous point. We have called our welcoming agent, Desiree, and she leads us up into the mountains and our home for the next 7 days. We arrive to a beautiful Spanish castle with lots of living space both outdoors and in. And of course, a swimming pool.
We put away our groceries, open a bottle of wine and settle in. We are looking forward to catching up and everyone smiles in expectation, looking forward to a relaxed and laid back week in the Costa Brava.
