Tiny adventures in Spain: Today’s tiny adventure would be a chance encounter leading me to peacocks and walking new vineyard terrain with a stranger while getting my first glimpse of the beautiful mountain named Montserrat in the Barcelona region of Spain.
Whenever I met new people in the small wine village, it would always be just a matter of time before our schedules aligned again and we would experience a chance encounter in town. Today would be one of those days. I would run into the Argentinean that I met back on (American) Valentine’s Day when I shared a splendidly flavorful pink cava at Jaume Giro y Giro with this random English speaker and English Academy Director while celebrating America’s day for love in Spanish wine country.
Today, my Argentinean friend was also teaching lunch hour English for one of the big Cava Companies on this beautiful day. I’d find out that the cava company where we had both just finished teaching backed up to an entirely different set of walking vineyards connecting Sant Sadurni to an even tinier neighboring village. Hot diggity damn! This news meant I had a whole new adventure plan ahead of me! Walking in the vineyards just got a little more exciting from here on out!
My next walking adventure would stroll me past Peacocks and many other types of domestic fowl in a barn setting. I would meet a stranger (that spoke minimal to no English), and we strolled and struggled to communicate with one another for a good straight hour together on these winding vineyard trails. Finally, I would cap this tiny adventure off with my first glimpse of the majestic mountain called Montserrat being responsible for inspiring the names of many young women in this region of Spain.
