Barcelona & Costa Brava Wellness Retreat!
Day 1: Wednesday June 19th Barcelona, Spain.
Plan to catch a flight that lands before or around 5pm. The Welcome Cocktail party will begin at 7pm and you don't want to be late!
We will stay at Hotel Majestic. They have fabulous rooms. It is a perfect place to catch some zz's when you are Jet legged. Plus we will have the cocktail party and Welcome dinner on their rooftop. Easier to be at the hotel in case people have baggage or flight issues. I don't want everyone traveling all day then worry about finding the group in the city.
If you are planning on traveling before or after - I highly suggest After. I prefer the group is on the same energy level. Your jet leg won't last long. We will cure it fast with some Great wine and food night 1 to break you in!
Rooftop Coctails with Pica Pica 7pm to 8pm
Sit Down Dinner and Welcome Wellness Workshop 8pm to 10pm.
Day 2: Morning workout in Barcelona & Day Trip to Vic & Tona for Farm to table lunch.
Wake up in Barcelona between 8 and 9am - Grab some tea, juice and coffee and be prepared for your morning workout. Eat light - so your belly is not full.
We will power walk to the beach then do a HIIT Interval workout of 30 minutes then hike it back to the hotel. The Beach workout is for all levels. Don't worry if you have injuries or think you are "Old." This trip is for all fitness levels. I am skilled in regressing and progressing workouts, so even our top Athletes feel like they got what they were looking for.
Return to the hotel around 11:30am. Take a quick shower and checkout of the rooms. The Bus will pick us up at 1pm for our Day trip to VIC & Tona for our Farm to Table Lunch.
Lunch: 2:30pm to 4:30pm.
Learn about catalan Cuisine. This is no fancy restaurant, but a simple cafe in the middle of a farm town. However, the food is FRESH!!!! This family knows my In-Laws well and they will get nothing but the best of all the local shops. Get ready to indulge.

5pm - Quick shop around Vic - After Siesta. Qaint little stores with. We will just walk around after Siesta - Then be on our way to S'garo. The Beach town.
We will arrive that evening to our Hotel. It is a block from the Beach. Qaint and simple. Clean and perfect. We will be spending our money on sunbathing at local nicer hotels with amazing food and sleeping more casual :)
We should arrive between 7 and 8pm to S'garo. I believe most people will be full from lunch and Jet Legged. Dinner thursday evening is not included in the price. Dinner on your own if you want a lite bite. The hotel has a great menu or there are fabulous local cafe's within steps of the hotel.
Get a good night's rest! Don't drink too much in the evening, but the morning workout will get you sweating!

Relax, take sun, and Enjoy the Catalan Living. Siestas are a must!

I suggest looking into Meeting up with other people on the trip to have a light bite at hotel you are staying in, or one of the cafes along the beach. Nicer meals meet up at Villa Mas or Taverna de Mar.
Or Super Fancy - La Gavina Michelin Star restaurant Candlelight! We have a full day of eating tomorrow, so be prepared. However you have the morning to sleep in!
Sleep in - Workout on your own! I suggest walking the castle wall if you missed it yesterday! It is historic and a must see!
The hotel has a great small gym - if you prefer to lift. They have bikes, rowers, and treadmills too. Take a swim in the ocean and get your laps in! Or If you prefer to sleep - then do you ;)
