Sue Anne! You’ve got some Spaining to do! Day 47, Mas els Igols

This is the residency in “Barcelona” where I currently reside.  It’s called Mas els Igols which means, “swamp farm.”  There’s no swamp to be seen, but it is most certainly a farm… of grapes… and wine.  It’s a vineyard!

Just so you know… in addition to participating with the community, eating, sleeping, pooping regularly, riding a bike as my means of transportation (including riding 2 miles every other day to get groceries or supplies… no it’s not far, but it takes a big chunk of time out of my day), and writing about all […]
