Spain Part 1 | Hello Salou!

Hey Everyone!
You may have noticed that I haven't blogged in quite some time, the reason being, I have been in Spain for the past week! yay yay yay! I really enjoyed my time there, and I look back now with a tinge of sadness that it has all ended but I am so excited to document the highlights of it here and share my adventure with all of you guys!
I went to Salou with my boyfriend and nine of his family members for his mothers birthday (she didn't know we were going so we had to keep it a secret for the weeks leading up to it, and she was very suprised to see us all at the airport!) 
I want to start by thanking my boyfriend Denis (who I know sometimes checks my blog) for kindly paying for my ticket, taking me with him, and including me as part of his family, I love you!
I thought I would break my holiday up into three parts rather than having one big blog post. So this is part one, about my first three days in Salou, Spain. 

Day 1 - Friday July 12th

When Our room was ready, this was the view out the balcony.
We flew out of Dublin airport at 7am on Friday morning. I hadn't flown in years so I was feeling slightly nervous, it all went well though, apart from some seriously painful ear popping and throat pain upon descending. But my excitement to be in Spain soon overcame that!

By the time we got to the hotel we were all wrecked. I had only slept 2 hours that night, but we had to wait for our rooms to be ready. We sat at the pool bar and James (my boyfriends cousin) and I went for a quick swim. 

Denis, James and I then decided to go for a walk to find out where the center of the town, and the beach were, it was about a 10-15 minute walk from our hotel Sol Costa Daurada.
That night, the entire group of us went for dinner together, to a restaurant called Capri along the beach front. The only picture of that I got was this nummy ice-cream.

Our first night ended in and Irish Pub, where I felt like I was right back home again...whoops. 

Day 2 - Saturday July 13th
On Saturday, Denis and I spent most of the day alone together, which was really nice and looking back, was the only day we did that, which is a bit of a shame, but ah well! We walked into town and had a look around the various stalls and markets.We got some fancy ice-cream (again) in an ice-cream restaurant.

Following this, we took a walk to the pier at the end of the beach, which was full of lovely boats. We then took our shoes off and walked up along the shoreline. 

Day 3 - Sunday July 14th
This is the day Denis and I sat out on sunbeds by the pool for hours where I got a relatively awesome tan, and Denis turned into a glowing red tomato. Seriously, it was bad! Girls, always remember to use sun block!
This was also the day of Denis' Mum's birthday so we all went out for dinner and drinks that night in celebration. 

After dinner, Denis, his little sister Chelsea and I took a walk to the beach and we took pictures by the beautiful fountain located on the promenade. The fountain was one of my favourite things in Salou. It is constantly changing shapes and colours and looks so beautiful.

And that was my first three days in sunny Salou in a nutshell! Stay tuned for Part 2 | Barcelona Day trip ;)

I went to Salou a few years ago!! It's a lovely place to go on holiday! I remember the name of the hotel you stayed in, and actually I stayed in a hotel just down the road! I thoroughly enjoyed, and it looked like you did too!!:)
