Desayuna mucho, come más, cena poco y vivirás
‘Have a big breakfast, a bigger lunch, a light dinner and you will live longer’
This sums up the Spanish view on food. The Spaniards love food and cooking, so meal times are very important to their way of life. They are early risers so have a big breakfast to get them through the morning, have a big lunch so they can sleep it off at siesta time and then come dinner time, it is tapas time! No matter which of our trips you choose to go on, Barcelona or San Sebastian in the Basque region, you will quickly and happily adopt this way of life.

Bon dia Barcelona! Com que avui és sant Pere i el meu avi se’n deia i era un enamorat de la Boqueria, em permetreu que em posi una mica personal i li dediqui aquesta foto a ell i a tots i totes els que, com feia ell, sempre que vénen a Barcelona, s’escapen al mercat i tornen a casa amb un botí suculent al cistell 🙃Va per tu, avi ❤️
