What a fun couple of days we have had. Our friends Jessica and Leston arrived from North Carolina for a short visit. They are travelling around Spain for 2 weeks and we were lucky enough to have them make Sitges one of their stops.
We met them in Sitges late Tuesday morning. They had taken the high speed train from Madrid to Barcelona and then a train to Sitges. We wandered around Sitges for a couple of hours before we had lunch. Sitges did not disappoint weather-wise. It was a gorgeous day.
We stopped for a bit of tapas and then headed back to our house so Bob and I could freshen up before dinner. We took the back roads through the beautiful countryside. Once at our house we had a glass or two of cava in the garden.
Then we headed back to Sitges for dinner at Alfresco Restaurant. As we were walking through town we were treated to a little entertainment. The square was set up with a stage for the band and the Sardana dancing was just starting. The Sardana dance is a traditional dance in Catalonia. One of the things we love about this place is how steeped in traditions the people are.
After watching for a few minutes we went off to dinner. As always Xavi made the evening absolutely perfect. The food was amazing and we all had a fabulous time.
Wednesday we met for breakfast in Sitges and then came back to the vineyard for a tour. Hanna outdid herself once again and taught us all so much.

Following the tour and tasting we took a walk in the vineyard. A couple of photos under the 1,400 year old Olive tree.
The kids checking out the stone hut.
I had to take and artsy photo of them.
I’m pretty sure these two absolutely loved the vineyard.
We ended the visit with a drive to Sant Sadurní d’Anoia which is Cava country. Then took a drive up to El Castell de Subirats. Back to Sitges and a quick bite at SuperPollo before taking them to the train station to continue their adventures in Spain.
It’s was wonderful to have them visit and to be able to spend time chatting away. We tried to show them enough to encourage them to return someday. Thank you so much for visiting Jessica and Leston! 🙂
