When life gives you lemons... use them as detox! These couple of weeks (read months) have been rather stressful and tiring so whenever I feel a overwhelmed with a mix of drama and work I always try to pay a visit to my favourite area in the country, in Costa Brava.
One of the villages I used to visit as a kid with my family is Pals, which has a medieval village we all love the second we step out of the car.
The medieval town of Pals is on top of a hill but believe me it's nothing, just, don't wear heels, since there are many cobbled streets and stairs. If you spend a day there you can also head to the beaches by car, which may take about 15 minutes.
