Monks, kings, markets & calçots

Yesterday was amazing! We drove through wine country, discovered a gorgeous thirteenth-century monastery, wandered through the market at Valls, and drove through half the region searching for calçots.

I can´t wait to tell you all about it but since I´m at work right now, I´ll direct you to Alan´s blog, where he talks about our day and shares some of the beautiful pictures he took.

Born and raised in Brazil, a Canadian stole my heart and took me to Canada in 1999. After seven years between Montreal and Toronto, we then moved to Barcelona, Spain, where I did research for my PhD thesis. This blog began as a chronicle of our adventures while living in Barcelona and exploring the old world and has acquired a life of its own after we moved back to Canada.

  1. Oi!!!

    Voltei para Paris hoje, fiquei com um aperto no coração de me despedir do sol, das cores…

    Aqui esta uns 9°C, um céu cinza, uma casa para limpar, roupas para lavar, os livros para estudar… Um pesadelo!

    Enfim…

    Adorei a foto do prato da Bruna no Wushu! =)

    Beijao

  2. it was really amazing Christian! most of it actually looks just like it did back in the 13th-14th century. I couldn’t believe it! It’s in perfect conditions and there are still monks living there (31, to be precise, the youngest of whom is 24 years old)

    I often think of you when I visit a monastery ;)
