When we were on our way to Cataluna we thought we would only stay for half a day in Barcelona and then move on to an ecological project in the Pyrenees to do our internship for university there.
As life is as unpredictable we received a message from our host in the mountains. We were on the bus from Germany to Spain already when we were asked to come a whole week later due to internal problems at the place.
First we were a shocked as we had already arranged our bus to the Pyrenees and had not calculated any accomodation costs in Barcelona as we did not expect any complications.
Thinking about possible ways to have an interesting time in this big city, we finally remembered Pranakitchen.
We had been following read Martina’s blog, and new she was currently based in Barcelona.
As we found ourselves in quite an urgent situation we simply wrote an email to Martina and actually didn’t expect her to have nor the capacity neither the time to host us. Far from it!
She was the only one who wrote back to us – nobody on e.g. couchsurfing did.
This made it possible for us to have an awesome week in Barcelona and learn about Martina’s delicious, healthy vegan kitchen. We even had the possibility to help her to prepare a big Pranakitchen event which was super inspiring and a lot of fun!
We cut vegetables together, baked cookies, had interesting conversations and also got to know another sweet helper of her who volunteered for a day.
Martina is an openhearted, very welcoming, dedicated and conscious power woman!
Thank you very much for this beautiful experience, Martina. We’re grateful to have met you and hope you will continue inspiring others.
