I’ve lived in Spain and Portugal for the last eight years. Small, local shops specialising in fruit and veg, bakeries and butchers, even though I’m vegan, are still very popular. Most produce tends to be grown in small allotments and gardens within the district, giving locals who grow food a little extra income. People still […]
What The Camino De Santiago Can Teach Us About The Homeless.
I remember the first time I fully understood that some people didn’t have a home. While on holiday on the Costa Brava in northern Spain as a child, we’d taken a day trip to Barcelona. I saw a man asleep on a cardboard box on the pavement. My nine-year-old brain couldn’t fathom out why he […]

Mother Earth. The Cycle Of Life Is Rooted In Nature.
The cycle of life is rooted in nature. From the first buds bursting forth through Mother Earth’s fertile skin in the glorious chaos of spring. As we dance our way into summer and the sweet scent of jasmine on the heat of the ocean breeze. When the first leaves of fall carpet the world with […]
