I miss the mountains

Do you know how we were saying that we missed the fresh air? Well, we are lucky to have friends that don’t wait a second to offer a hike on a Saturday morning.

We haven’t had the opportunity to spend some time with Natalia & Jordi after their wedding and we were very excited to learn everything about their honeymoon in New Zealand and Sidney (amazing location choice!). When Anna & Manel proposed to have lunch the 6 of us at their lovely home that was a done deal. Add to the equation their little cutie chipmunk who is starting to walk around, to know how amusing the day looked ahead.

Our little hike was at Castell del Escornalbou, a place 15km from Cambrils a nice coast town in Tarragona. It is quite convenient to go with kids (or not very trained people like myself) because it is a short walk with easy access and you got to be surrounded by big rocks, beautiful cork oaks and all the Tarragona meadows at your feet. Manel told us that he went there as little kid, and that they have made with Anna a tradition to visit it at least once a year. I think it is very sweet that they are also transferring this annual ritual to the little Bernat.

Do you have any similar tradition? Did you inherit any from your parents? Have you created some with your partner or with your kiddos (or would you)?

Follow our gang through the mountains, we know the trail!

If you don’t know how to engage a kid into a hike, give him a cookie, it works ;)

Bernat was always under supervision, but was in that age that doesn’t want their parents’ (or anyone’s for that matter) hands.

And talking about cuteness, Bernat happy to be able to walk all by himself.

Dani not getting the memo, he doesn’t need hands he is older enough.
Looking forward to more outings, please bring the warm temperatures, we are all ready for spring!

      Doncs potser he estat una mica generosa al títol, era un camí de frares que dona tota la volta a la muntanyeta (molt senzillet), vosaltres ja sé que sou més hardcore :) però si hi ha alguna cosa assequible, hi tant! El jersei blau és del outlet del Mango, el blanc de fa milers de temporades crec que del Zara, ja no és blanc blanc però em va tan bé que sol ser un comodí.

  2. Awww beautiful photos and that place is so nice… I’d love to ho for a sunday trip too :)

    nooo, never stop the photography crazyness!! I definitely remember the no hands stage with my little brother :P Doesn’t mean Bernat is any less cute though also how awesome is his name! Love all the portraits and all the angles – super fun to scroll through, your posts always make me happy :)

      hahahhaha Thanks Fiona! You are very convincing we are not going to stop the crazyness ;) I think Bernat is a medieval name, that although it is very traditional here, is not the most popular nowadays. I think it is cool that they chose it!

    oh, looks like it was a beautiful day out… xo

      We were lucky! That day was supposed to rain, and in fact it was a little bit in Barcelona when we left in the morning. But it vanished as we were approaching the location :)

      oooh! the camping summer adventures :) Dani has told me a lot about it because he was also one of the kids going every summer and hating it (hahahaha). I’m sure you will find a blast of tradition with your future little ones.

    Artistes! Quines fotos més xules, com sempre… Les nostres encara no les he revelat, a veure si m’hi poso que se m’acumula la feina. Tots sortim molt macos, però el que més en Bernat (ejem…)! La pròxima a Terrassa ;-)

    De fet… crec que jo també tinc aquest jersei… O_O del Mango normal de l’any passat… però per algun motiu a tu et va més llarg… que et vas agafar una talla més gran?

    This reminds me a little of Mount Royal (royal mountain) here in Montreal. I’ve only hiked up once, and even then not all the way to the top. But, growing up in the shadows of the Rocky Mountains I usually tell Rick that I miss the mountains because all we have here are hills.

      Oh it would be the nicest thing to go hiking in Canada, I’ve heard how breathtaking your national parks are :)
