We want to end this post by sending our love and MIL GRACIAS to our amazing host family. We learned so many new skills and had such wonderful adventures throughout this absolutely beautiful area of Catalonia. We miss you!

If you get a chance to visit Barcelona or Spain, we highly recommend adding Olot and the surrounding villages to your list!
