Afternoon sun in Tossa De Mar on the coast of Costa Brava. We spent a day shooting some video with the awesome Geoff and Katie of @wandertooth in the charming town of Tossa De Mar. This small town is not only a great place to soak up some history but also to walk the beach and the narrow streets of the old town. As we make our way along the coast here in Spain this town will always stick in my mind. Beautiful views, great food and great people. Exactly what makes Catalunya great. #incostabrava
