Catalan food and Pilates too

As a fan of all-things-Catalan, I’m thrilled and tempted by “A Food and
Fitness Vacation” (what could be better?) offered this coming spring by
Spanish Journeys. Organized by tour guide and Barcelona-trained chef-extraordinaire Teresa Parker, this trip combines hiking, biking, cava-tasting, cooking classes with a stay in a villa north of
Barcelona (close to Girona -- one of my favorite Catalan towns), and daily
Pilates classes offered by New York-based master teacher Karrie
Adamany.

Parker, a Wellfleet resident, discovered Pilates while recovering from
breast cancer last year. She’s now incorporating it in one of her
cultural and culinary tours.

“I’ve always eaten well but never been disciplined about exercise,”
says Parker.

For some reason I never seem to be able to exercise when I’m traveling
(other than walking, walking, walking) and so this seems like a great
idea. Plus, if I exercise every day I get to eat more Catalan cheese,
right?
