Hola and welcome, as you probably know, my story started in 2011 when I moved to Cracow, Poland. Thanks to the destiny during the winter 2012 I met el meu novio (my Catalan boyfriend). Over 14 months we lived apart (2 170 km were between us), but we survived the distance. In March 2014 we made a big decision and I moved to Catalonia. And here comes this blog: my aim is to show you all the beauty this country has to offer :) I´m lucky to have such a wonderful and pride guide at my side who is showing me thousand and one new places, new traditions, food and wine. I´m thankful to him and I´m grateful to share my experiences with you. I hope you enjoy the blog as much as I do. :)
North American photographer Lori Needleman moved to Spain in 2009 after meeting her husband while photographing the Spanish festival Las Bodas de Isabel de Segura. As she lives in the heart of Spain, she gets a rare glimpse of what life is like for those Spaniards living in rural villages where the only daily connection to the real world is the television. She´s walked the fields with shepherds, taken private tours of hidden tunnels from the Spanish Civil War and was chosen to be the town crier (pregonera) at the 2012 Las Bodas de Isabel festival in Teruel. Lori Needleman's ESPAÑA, a website dedicated to her visual experience as an American living in Spain, was selected by Photo District News Annual 2011 as one of the best photography websites of the year. In 2012, she began blogging for The Huffington Post Travel Section and for her own blog, Inside Spain. Needleman´s images are award-winning and have been featured in several magazines. She can be reached via her website lorineedleman.com.
