WOW. I don’t even know where to start! I have been in Barcelona for about 11 days now and I have been able to do and see so much!
Last week my program took a trip to the Codorniu winery and to Sitges beach!
we started our day by driving about 45 minutes to the winery where they are famous for the cava. Cava is basically a type of champagne but they aren’t allowed to call it that here! so we got to tour the winery, which was beautiful and very mediteraninan styled. we got to go into the cellars and see how the cava is made and then my favorite part… the tasting! we were able to sample a rose and a white cava. Since its made right there at the winery it was for sale really cheap so i bought a big pink bottle of the rose!
After the winery we headed to Sitges beach! it was a cute little coastal town- almost like a small beach town in California. The first thing we did was eat lunch in a little place back in the neighborhood of Sitges. Ive always heard europeans move at a slower, but man, we wait so long for our food here! a girls gotta eat!
It was such a fun little getaway with some friends I’ve made in the program
I have a lot more to tell you about.. this was all in just one day (!!) so I’m gonna break it up into a couple different posts.
