Video Post! My Catalunya Experience Episode

Catalunya Experience Annabel Candy

The wait was worth it! My Catalunya Experience TV Travel show episode has aired and you can watch it here.

There are two versions: Catalan and English. The English version still has a bit of Catalan spoken but even if you can’t understand every word you’ll probably enjoy the beautiful scenery and grow as curious and excited about Catalonia as me through watching it.



In this episode of the Catalunya Experience TV show I travel with presenter Ivana Miño to:

  1. Montserrat – where we visit the monastery, talk about the value of silence and go climbing;
  2. Val de Núria to learn about Saint Gils and go skiing;
  3. Barcelona to visit Casa Pedrera and enjoy Antoni Gaudi’s timeless architecture and visit Montjuic Castle and the Olympic Stadium;
  4. Vilanova i la Geltrú for the grand finale to experience the carnival with hilarious Catalan comedians Toni Alba and Jordi.

It was a spectacular journey, made all the more special because I traveled with a highly talented and  super fun Catalan film crew. A huge thank you to all my friends on the team including director Xavi Brichs, beautiful Ivana Miño and every one who worked so hard to organise the trip and make me feel so welcome during my stay in Catalonia.

I was a guest of the Catalan Tourist Board and TV3 during my stay in Catalonia. Follow the #CatalunyaExperience hashtag on Instagram for amazing photos from all over Catalonia. Or find out more about visiting Catalonia on the Catalunya website.

    What an adventure Annabell!
    A few months ago I went skiing (in Canada) like you – for the first time in 20 years – and was surprised first how one picks it back up not far off where you left off, and I’d forgotten how much I loved it and what fun it was!
    What a fantastically diverse region Catalunya is – definitely needs a return visit to be able to spend more time soaking up all it has to offer :)

    We’ve been to Barcelona, but not the rest of the region. Thank you for being you and sharing this experience. Truly amazing!

      Hi Barbara,

      Hope you get to revisit soon! Barcelona is amazing but there’s a lot to explore in the rest of Catalonia too.

    Cada dia més orgullós del meu país, Catalunya.
    Un programa elegant i didàctic.
    M’alegro que li agradés … això crec.
    Benvinguda una i mil vegades a Catalunya. Els Pirineus l’esperen una altra vegada.
