The other day I headed a bit further afield via the wonderful train system and stepped off the platform at the one and only Castelldefells.
Fortunately, I managed to pick a sunny day to go out exploring a beach area, except the walk from the train station to Platja de Castelldefels got a little warm.
If you have a scooter, bike or any other means of transport, I’d recommend using it in this case (or walk slow!)
Once at the beach, I just walked around a little bit, took in the sun, watched people play, saw dogs run, and took shots.
It’s great to explore the area you’re in, but sometimes you just need to go out further and see something different. Castelldefels is only about 20 minutes on the train and yet feels like a whole new place, despite still being classified as Barcelona.
Even though there’s good chunks of beach near where I’m living, experiencing the same concept elsewhere helps to bring a renewed sense of energy.
It’s like a four hour holiday because you break entirely from your current life’s location.
