Located just at 100km from Barcelona, the medieval town of Rupit-Pruit makes a perfect day trip excursion, hiking on the many mountain paths to the town, enjoying the views of the valley of Sau and Collsacabra. In contrast with a medieval town like Rupit-Pruit, our modern iron rides made quite a good show the day we visited it.

Early birds like we are, our day started on the road, having a breakfast half way to Rupit-Pruit. On the second stage of the route we took one of the mountain paths to enjoy the views of the valley of Sau and Collsacabra. Made a quick stop and took some photos.

Per matiners com nosaltres, el dia començà a la carretera, fent un bon esmorzar a mig camí cap a Rupit-Pruit. Al segon stage de la ruta vam endinsar-nos per carreteres de muntanya, per gaudir finalment de les vistes de la vall de Sau i Collsacabra, poc abans d’arribar a Rupit-Pruit. Una parada ràpida i fer unes cuantes fotos.

My ride, the Harley Davidson Nightster.

We have to admit, a group of Harley Davidson motorcycles is not silent. Upon our arrival to Rupit-Pruit we started to get the attention from the tourists that were wandering around. Most funny thing, when we parked all the rides, a young couple of Asian tourists approached us and started taking photos of all the motorcycles and our crew. Probably those photos are in some Instagram or Facebook account or another travel blog, who knows. We were crossing our paths afterwards many times during the day.

Hem d’admetre, un grup de Harley Davidson no és silenciós. A la nostre arribada a Rupit-Pruit vam començar a cridar l’atenció de molts turistes que rondaven la zona. El més curiós un cop aparcats, una parella de joves asiàtics se’ns apropà i començaren a fer fotos de les motos i de tot el grup. Probablement aquelles fotos hagin acabat en un compte d’Instagram o Facebook, fins i tot un altre blog de viatges, qui sap. Varem creuar-nos varies voltes al llarg del dia.

Gastronomy made in to the top of my visit, with many shops in town with traditional catalonian food. Also, one attraction in Rupit-Pruit is to cross the hanging bridge to the center of the village. Build up some courage and cross to the other side.

La Gastronomia es posà al primer lloc de la visita, amb molt bones botigues i menjar català. A més, una de les atraccions és creuar el pont penjant cap al centre de la vila. Reunir una mica de coratge i passar a l’altre banda
