How do you plan your life? How do you want your life?
I came to Spain by default. I’d applied for anything and everything in France and 10 days before I was about to commence work as a maintenance man on the Cote D’Azur I got a call, to say change of plan and would I mind Flamenco and Sangria in Spain? So I decided to see what Spain had to offer a young man from Hull.
Basically I saw out the year in Salou and then with the help of tour company work as a Representative, hopped over to the Balearics, never imagining the experience would last so long and be so life changing.
I had one of those moments that everyone should be allowed, at least once. Giving birth to a priceless idea.
Almost three decades have passed since a simple chalked notice board in the street used to entice walkers to come and share Mallorca with me!
Those Day walks lasted 25yrs and forged lasting friendships AND new adventures, like treks from place to place, with your belongings moved along the route, were the obvious next step.
The journey didn’t completely stop on this island, but spread its wings to discover other parts of this fabulous country and I now guide in The Canaries, Sierra Nevada and La Rioja.
But Mallorca after all these years is still something very special that I love with a passion.
