Míriam was born in Canet de Mar, a charming seaside village between Barcelona and Girona, a true Catalan! She has spent her life between her hometown, Girona – where she studied Tourism, and Barcelona – where she’s been living these last years with occasional stays back in Canet.
We met when we were passing our exams to become official tourguides in 2000, so she has as much experience as me guiding around Barcelona. Soon afterwards, she got hired by one of the companies that offer daily step-up sightseeing tours, and there I met her again one day that I joined one of their excursions to Montserrat because I needed to learn how “professional tourguides” organize this daytrip. She was the guide that day, so I can say a lot of the things I know about Montserrat I learnt it from her! ☺
She speaks fluent English and French, and good Italian. And now, out of her passion about learning, she’s back to university in the afternoons to study Art History: her goal is to enjoy the lessons and learn, so she’s taking it easy.
We have traveled together to the Middle East, and I can tell you she is passionate and maybe a bit emotional, but she is also very honest and straightforward. She can take you visiting all the city sites and destinations around Barcelona, and she makes great company for a Tapas Tour when I’m not available.
She loves photography, food, art and traveling: she can’t wait to go to India again!
