    What is your view of the political stalemate in Spain?  By the time this interview is published the situation may well have changed significantly, so it’s not easy to say. At the time of writing (late January), the possibility of forming a lasting coalition government looks unlikely, although I suspect that something temporary may be […]

    Easter at the Beach

    All that remains of the old Barcelona railway tracks, which used to cut off the Cabanyal and the other sea front areas from the rest of the city, are a few spaghetti western style stations in Boulevard de la Serreria.

    Togas, Hankies and Espadrilles With the city all partied out and out of puff after Fallas, Valencia has never been big on Holy Week. Easter is a quiet affair around these parts. Some opt for a tentative pre-summer trip to the beach in the patchy April weather. Others decide to get away to the mountains […]

    When It Rains It Pours

      I knew I was making a conscious downshift in lifestyle pace when I settled into Valencia. Part of the city’s appeal was stepping away from that nagging feeling that you’re always missing out on something you should be doing that you can get living somewhere like Los Angeles or London, Madrid or Barcelona.

    Just Gotta Remember Where You Are Sometimes
