Having moved from the UK to Jaen, Andalucia in 1996 with my husband and two sons, now three sons, a holiday rental home, websites, blogs and a dog later my adopted home still enthralls me.
I never tire of the endless scenery, the sea of olive groves, the multi-coloured sunsets, chattering birds, white towns scattered through mountains and valleys and of course the friendly people. This is a home I can´t imagine leaving. Exploring yes, late gap-year world travel yes, but to find more peace, more space, less stress than rural Andalucia, no.
Between home, teaching English, writing and gardening exploring often takes the back seat, especially in the summer heat. My home and nearby holiday home are in the Sierra Sur de Jaen, the most northerly of the eight provinces. My hope with this blog is to share many moments of Andalucian living with you.
I´m as happy under canvas as in 5* star accommodation, I love to drive but am happy to be driven, I love to explore by myself or with others, whatever, however, I just love mooching around this incredible country and beyond.
Paid posts and fam trips are sometimes accepted (and stated as such) and I love to do reviews. My Andalucia website and Luxury Spain Travel blog also get the benefit of my explorations and writings. My Press Kit is over on Luxury Spain.
I can also be found via my Bespoke Spain Travel Planning Service on Only Spain.
