Happy Sant Jordi!
Sant Jordi is an important festive day in Catalonia celebrated to honor St. George. It is also known as the Day of the Rose or Day of the Book. Each year on April 23 men traditionally make a gift to their sweetheart in the form of a rose, women give a book to their beloved one – “a rose for love and a book forever.” This is why you will encounter a vast amount of rose and book sellers on the streets of Barcelona throughout this day.

We kicked off the New Year in Barcelona with a lunch on the beach on January 3 with incredibly sunny 22 degrees. Our favourite beach restaurant: Ca La Nuri.
We even had two more days above 22 degrees and a couple of mild days – but finally rain came after the extreme dry autumn where we were close to water rationing.
Michael joined a running group in January whereas Chris went back to his roots and joined a ping pong club. Also we are back to Salsa classes which are a lot of fun.
Next to those activities January was very sportive. Michael went 3 times a week swimming and summed up 20 km. I went 3 times per week to the gym and swimming once a week. All those activities combined with an adjustment in our nutrition led to quick results: loss weight and and building up muscles.
But no only did we take care of our bodies but also our minds. Michael intensified his Spanish classes and we spend a lovely evening in the Palau de la Musica. For Christmas I got tickets for the New Year´s concert – Strauss´popular waltzes and marches.
Body, mind, culture – January was also the month of partying… (to be continued)
