Mercedes D.

Girona, Cataluña, Spain

Hello my name Mercè, I was born in Cadaqués, a little town on the Mediterranean Catalan coast.

Since I was 9 years old I've been in touch with the local history, art and nature's world that surrounds the place where I come from.

A lot of visitors used to pass by my place and I used to offer my help to lead them to the places they were looking for. This made me earn an illusion to travel, to know a bit of this world. When I was 16 years old I traveled quite a lot, around my country, Europe and Africa.

I stopped my travels because I created my own family and I decided to start my life in my home town. This was on 2002 when my eldest child born. After a while working in different technical and marketing jobs I decided to do what I love. This is offering the possibility to people who arrive in my country, in my land to visit the places I love. Discovering art that I like, food I consider wonderful and the amazing history that exists in my place, and this is what I do.

In 2012 I created my own small guiding services and I manufactured several options to discover the Catalan history, art, nature and gastronomy. I am very satisfied to transmit knowledge, understanding and happiness to everyone who is around.
