Hola!  I’m Jem.  I moved from my home in Britain to Girona in 2016 in search of a change… and I found it!  A change in people, food, place, culture and, of course, sunshine!

Having hunted high and low for news and insights on life in Girona, Catalonia, I have found very little in the way of blogs and websites.  This is pretty surprising considering the array of international cyclists, teachers and travellers living here and the curiosities of life and culture here.  So I’ve decided to set up a blog to fill the gap and share the hidden gems of living here.

Follow my blog for:

  • news and recommendations of things to do in Girona and Catalonia
  • … and equally importantly for things to eat and drink here
  • and finally for notes and anecdotes on international life.
