His life is a collection of a thousand stories, each one more peculiar and amusing than the last, Gaby is a real character. One of the stories that most caught our attention was the migrations throughout his life, first with his parents and then with his own family, in search of a better future.
Gaby's parents were from Radiquero, a village in the municipality of Alquézar. He was born in Sabadell in 1966, as his parents had had to move for work. When he was 14, they returned to the village, where his parents worked in the famous Radiquero cheese factory.
In 1989 they returned to Catalonia because work was again scarce in the village. It was a difficult period of hard work.
Over the years, after a new life experience that took him to the Dominican Republic in 2008, he got married and had his first daughter. He returned to Spain, to his parents' home town.
On his return to Radiquero, together with his wife Nora, he ran the village bar and, only three months before we arrived, he had closed that stage in the hostelry and had started working as a Town Bailiff in Alquézar, which represented a more stable and relatively quieter job than the previous one.
Life in a small village is not for everyone, but for Gaby and his family, Radiquero and Alquézar mean much more than home: "they won't move me from here" he said with a smile.
