I still call Costa Brava Home...when is Perth Australia walking distance to the Mediterranean

If you haven't see it yet, check out the article over at Times online Costa Brava Pyrenees Tourism authority was caught using a stock image of a beach in Western Australia as part of their marketing campaign. Makes sense. You would not want to chose an East Coast image (ie Sydney) because it would be too much effort to have to photoshop out all the shark fins swimming in the water.

A beach by any other name... So, yeah, I can see their side of the argument. LOL.
