Celebrations and Exploring Calella, Spain

Last week I took the week off as it was time to celebrate hubs' 30th birthday. Everyone says turning 30 isn't like every other birthday {I'm yet to find out} so we decided to go big or go home. We had friends flying in from different countries and decided to rent a house outside of Barcelona for the week. Our final choice was a duplex in Calella which had enough sleeping places for all 15 of us, a swimming pool and barbecue, which is pretty much all we needed.

I had a surprise for hubs which I had previously shared on twitter, we got a kitten. Hiding him till Monday was pretty much impossible as we arrived at the house on Saturday. But we still had some surprises up our sleeves. On Monday, we made some helium balloons from a kit I got at Globo Image, got some champagne and picked up a cake to welcome him once he got out of bed. Nothing better than champagne in the morning, to be honest.

Calella - City, beach and mountains

We spent most days wondering around the city, climbing up to the mountains and drinking loads of alcohol {so now I'm having some alcohol free days}. It is a lovely city, with a clean beautiful beach and it's only 1h away by train or 35mins by car. The perfect place to get away and relax for a week or a weekend. In the summer, you can also go snorkelling, or visit the Water Sports Centre for some water adventures such as snorkelling, scuba diving, jetski and more.

If you're visiting Barcelona and would like somewhere to relax which is not far but away from all the chaos and craziness of the big city, I'd definitely recommend checking out hotels and houses in Calella. We all had an amazing time and I'd be more than happy to go back.

Where was the last place you visited and what did you do?
