Maui-based travel and lifestyle photographer Robyn Penn enjoyed a week exploring Cadaqués, Spain, with her family. For the Well Travelled series, she shares her words and images from this village oasis and the surrounding areas…

There’s no such thing as coincidence. When my three siblings ended up in Europe, we decided to meet in the isolated Mediterranean fishing village of Cadaqués. Carved into the cliffside, our ancient stone house looked back over crystal blue waters to the 17th century Church of Santa Maria and Casino L’Amistat, which are the cultural hubs of the town. We explored the coastline by boat, hiked through the surrounding Cap de Creus National Park and wandered the lively cobblestone streets.
