Screaming Zaragoza

On September 10, 2012, Ivan, Lil Dave and I had breakfast.  Ivan and I shared toast, French omelet and cheese.  Lil Dave had a banana omelet and bananas on toast.  The weather was perfect so we ate outside.


The views were amazing.

We checked out of the hotel and then started driving back down the mountain.

It was only a short drive to Naturalandia in Sant Julià de Lòria.  It’s a theme park with archery, a big ropes course, an arcade, biking, golf putting range, rollerblading, pony rides, atvs and the longest alpine toboggan ride in the world.  It was up in the mountain with amazing views.

We rode the toboggan ride called Tobotronc. Ivan and I figured out that the ride only had like 8-10 toboggans that’s why the wait was so long for it.  This ride is over 3 miles long which includes the ride going up the mountain.  The toboggan is secured to the railing and the person in the back controls it by using the levers.  You put it forward to go fast and backwards to slow down.  The heavier person goes in the back.  So, I hopped in the front and we started going up the mountain which took a few minutes.

The toboggan ride is so fun.  We were screaming since it seems like the toboggan is going to fly off..even though you know it’s gotta be safe and you’re not going to, but you still think it anyway.


Next, we tried different things like biking, the golf putting range, archery and rollerblading.  I liked the archery since I’ve never tried it.  It made me think of Kagome from the anime Inuyasha.


Ivan was good at it since he’s done it before.   I kept trying until I finally hit the target. 


It was time to go on the toboggan ride again.  It was a lot of fun again. 

Watch us on the fun Tobotrnc:

It was time to hit the road.  Ivan started driving us towards Zaragoza at 2 pm.  The drive was a few hours.

We arrived at the Airbnb place near Zaragoza.  It was a big house with a nice family.  Their house looked really modern and custom designed with a big pool. The lady who lived there with her family was very very friendly and showed us around the house and told us about Zaragoza.

Ivan drove to Zaragoza for dinner.  We were driving around and got lost.  The roads and freeways are confusing.

We couldn’t really find a restaurant to eat in (and walked out of one place which seemed rather expensive). Luckily we stumbled across a street with a bunch of tapas bars on it, and so went on a little mini tapas tour, going to a few places and getting some wine and a whole bunch of tasty tapas in each place.


It seemed pretty quiet out, which was understandable seeing as it was a Monday night, so after getting our fair share of tapas, we hopped in the car and drove back to the house.
