A great couple of days in Girona.   Girona has some wonderful medieval architecture and the region is quite well off so the buildings are all well maintained. We found a great location to stop – the ground floor of an underground car park has been given over to motorhomes and for 12 Euros a night was a real bargain. The owner could not have been nicer.  The stop was in the middle of town and the only odd thing was driving down the narrow urban road and being surrounded by apartment blocks in the camping stop.

We stayed in a site alongside vanlife royalty –  Julie and Jason from OurTour (  are on their way south and we spotted their van when we arrived at the stopover.  Their blog was one of the resources we first found when we started planning the trip.

Anyway, top of the Girona list was groceries and washing.  It’s all excitement living in the van. We had already found the local lavandaria, so off we went!  

Another couple that we met – Andy and Julie from NZ told us about a wonderful walking tour, so we booked that for the afternoon of the next day.

So, the next day we had a couple of hours wandering around in the morning, walked the city walls and visited the churches and museums and then met up with Christian – our guide for the afternoon.  We had a great couple of hours walking the town learning the history and seeing the backstreets that you would never find on your own. Christian also showed us the Game of Thrones filming locations from a couple of years back (no, never seen it!).
