Tiny adventures in Spain: Today’s tiny adventure would land me at the top of a castle overlooking the Mediterranean Sea in a gorgeous beach town called Denia, along the Costa Blanca in Spain.
Today’s tiny adventure was so exciting that it ultimately influenced me to relocate my art-obsessed tush directly out of the Barcelona region of Spain and straight to the Costa Blanca (the white coast) along the Mediterranean Sea. What? Did I just say that? Didn’t I come to Spain to revisit my dreams of being a creative in Barcelona but in a new more mobile wanderlust kind of way? Yes, I sure did!
You heard me, right friends. I never thought I would pack my little suitcase (or more descriptively, an extremely large van to the maximum, with all my precious belongings) to leave the artsy city of Barcelona and head south to choose the Costa Blanca along the Med as my new home. But, my sisters and brothers, that is just what I did about six months after my first visit here to Denia, Spain! This trip on this very tiny adventure, was the one that planted the first seed for my eventual move down the coastline and into the Alicante region of Spain.
So, what the heck happened here that was so magical? Oh, I don’t know maybe it was the artisan crafted vermut for a mere 1.80 that came with a free tapa at the first adorable joint that we stopped at in Denia, as we made our way through the curvy beachfront streets lined with Vespa scooters in this beautiful port city? Or perhaps it was the breathtaking view from the top of a seaside castle that won my heart or the magical vibrations from the scenic mountain Montgo that often was the backdrop to some of the most interesting angles in this beach city? It’s anybody’s guess, but the sole purpose of this tiny adventure today was to take a taxi ride from the beach town my friends currently lived in (Xeraco) and see what this more substantial, more vibrant beach town (Denia) was all about.
My friends were looking for a potential rental that would sit directly in front of the Med. When they asked for my feedback on whether to consider the one we saw on this tiny adventure today, my two thumbs couldn’t perk up fast enough. You bet I told them to take it and you can bet they did just that! Denia, we all loved you at first sight! Oh, and what a place it is! Say hello to my little friend, the one and only, Denia, Spain.
