I took another bus tour to Figueres, to the Dali Museum and to the charming town of Girona. I have to admit I've never been a huge fan of the work of Salvador Dali, but being so close to it, I felt it warranted a visit. It was just as crazy as I expected and the tour was fun for the most part (except for the baby who cried nearly the entire ride back to Barcelona) I found the town of Figueres charming and enjoyed a sangria and some tapas at a cafe near the museum and a conversation about love and loss with the waiter after my self-guided tour through Dali's craziness.
The bus also stopped in the breathtaking town of Girona where I totally lost my heart! The view across the bridge is so enchanting I couldn't get enough of it! Here's a link to a blog with 9 reasons to visit Girona and I have to agree, it is well worth your time! Click here for the link.
