Over the past six weeks we’ve swapped Ireland for Australia, and 20 odd hens and ducks for at least as many budgies, finches and quails.
I’ve a mixed track record of cooking foraged food. Some recipes - like nettle soup - have gone well. Others though...
The Spain I grew up with was summed up in four words: sun, sea, sand and sangria. Poble Vell is a bit different...
Travelling, for me anyway, is about venturing into the unknown and discovering new things and experiences.
One of the things that I love about our new lifestyle is not having to set an alarm every day. Nick still does, but I much prefer to wake up more naturally and usually do around the same time now anyway.
If you've seen the video of Nick smashing up a paper donkey then you'll know that last weekend was his birthday.
When I found out that we had a house-sit in Normandy my first thought, well my second after "mmm cider", was that I would finally get to see the Bayeux Tapestry.
