A year ago today we sat at home in the UK writing our first post – a short review of Paul Richardson’s book, A Late Dinner. My, how time has flown.
Since then, snakes have been spotted, goats fed and a kitten has joined the family. We’ve marvelled at the beautiful scenery, spoken some dodgy Spanish, eaten jamón (of course) and, more recently, been in awe of the almond blossom.
We’ve also come to realise what fabulous blogs exist about the country and the passion that many put into maintaining them. It really is the best way to truly understand Spain – warts and all.
Our most popular posts have included stuff about the hippy community here, but also our guides, the Then and Now series, our walks and posts unrelated to Órgiva – like Lanjarón, Pampaneira and Salobreña.
Further afield, the English cemetery and El Pimpi restaurant in Málaga posts have proved popular too.
We’ve also drawn readers’ attention to films made by others – like this chap paragliding in Las Alpujarras and the leg-trembling Camino del Rey. Hey, we’ve even written about shopping trollies!
Our attempts at photography have occasionally come off – like the bonfires shot on an autumn walk.
Thanks for reading.

Feliz cumple 🙂
Let’s hope so…..!
