Breakfast and Bubbles…

It should go without saying that we care about what we eat. We’re not overly concerned about ‘balanced diet, healthy eating’ options but rather the taste, texture and the way it looks. There’s a small cafe just downhill from the apartment here which opens at 8:30am, handy if your legs are sluggish from yet another multi course tasting menu the evening before. It’s very friendly and they have an extensive breakfast menu, which we sampled on our first full day. Needless to say, we’ll be visiting Federal during the rest of our stay.

Our first full day was spent strolling round, doing some essential shopping (artisanal olive oil, L’Occitane shower gel) and watching the floral exhibits being assembled, which involved a cherry picker with two workmen popping up right outside our small balcony. Well, they were finishing off the floral design that spans the street….


Our afternoon was filled with a wander over the river and a return to the best ice cream shop in Girona, if not Catalunya. You can’t go wrong with Baked Apple ice cream and three different toppings…


After a small snooze at the apartment we strolled over to our evening meal at Bubbles which is billed as a gastro tapas bar. They do have amazing, award winning tapas though. We had the V.I.T. menu (Very Important Tapas) and it didn’t dissapoint. Some of the tapas were simply outstanding, especially the Gyoza dumpling with pork. What’s more the lovely waitress remembered us again!! Just a couple of hours later, we were back here. That’s the big advantage with Girona, it’s so compact everywhere is easy to reach on foot. There’s a disadvantage too, which I’ll get to tomorrow…
