I’m suffering a serious bout of post-trip depression after spending one of the best weeks of my life in Costa Brava, Spain. A trip jam-packed with once-in-a-lifetime experiences: from skydiving in Empuriabrava to meeting one of the world’s best chef Ferran Adria to diving deep into history with Dali’s apprentice and getting interviewed on Spanish national TV.
The Costa Brava trip brought us from one extreme end to the next – veering from the craggy coastline to the inland volcanoes by way of secluded coves and fishing villages. We conquered the skies (sky-diving), the road (amusing tourist train) and the sea (sailed the choppy waters but scuba-diving plans were cancelled). This trip was truly of epic proportions – here’s plenty of thanks to the Costa Brava Tourism Board and Tourism Spain! Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing snippets from my trip here. Meanwhile, here are some highlights of our journey through Costa Brava as seen through pictures.

The coloful hanging houses of Girona – the biggest city in Costa Brava.
Costa Brava is home to some of the best foods in the world – we started with some traditional Catalan suquet (fish stew).
Then we sampled some nouveau cuisine at the world’s second best restaurant in the world, Celler de Can Roca (voted by San Pellegrino). Josep Roca, recently named the best sommelier of Europe, pictured above.
The highlight of it all: meeting the world’s best chef – Ferran Adria of el Bulli fame.
