Hi! Welcome to my blog! My name is Dena and I live with my husband Keith in Mora d’Ebre a small town on the banks of the River Ebro in the Province of Tarragona, Catalonia.
We bought our house here back in Sept 2002 on the 3rd day of our very first trip to the area! Impulsive? It was! But, we’d seen enough of the area in 3 days to convince us that we’d found somewhere quite special. So, we converted the property to 3 apartments and moved out here permanently in March 2005. We now live in one of the apartments and the other two make up our small business as two holiday rental units.
We already have a business website for our apartments (www.riverebroapartments.com) which features the accommodation and a brief overview of the area. On this blog I am going to babble in more detail about all the great things that there are see to do in this wonderful area: walking, birdwatching, nature, the food the history and culture of Catalonia and anything else that attracts my butterfly mind! The “Terres de l’Ebre” or “Lands of the Ebro” will be the main focus but I want to include places of interest throughout the Province of Tarragona. Which means I have a great excuse to have lots of days out!
If you are not sure where Tarragona is then I suggest that you start with this post which will give you a quick overview of the Province and its location.
So, whether resident or visitor I hope you enjoy the site. If you have never ventured away from the popular holiday resorts on the Costas I hope this will encourage you to come and see the riches that rural Spain has to offer. Oh – and please feel free to comment, ask questions or suggest topics.
I hope to see or hear from you soon!
