Bitten by Spain - The Murcian Countryside a Baptism by Fire
Want to Read
In search of la buena vida and sunnier climes, Deborah Fletcher and her husband John came to be the proud owners of a large and extremely beautiful piece of land in a river valley in the region of Murcia, southern Spain. There, with an ever-increasing menagerie of dogs, cats and birds, not to mention an awful lot of spiders, they lived between a static caravan and a huge old barn as they battled perpetually - with the elements, the wildlife, the authorities and cultural differences - to build their dream home from a pile of stones. Bitten by Spain began as a series of newsy emails to friends and family in the UK and developed into this intimate, warts-and-all - and often hilarious - take on Spanish rural life and what it's like learning to live in a finca el campo in southern Spain. "... a brilliantly written and funny account of Deborah's move to Spain" Justin Aldridge, Eyeonspain.com "The author faces each challenge with great gusto and a tremendous sense of humour" Reina van Nieuwkerk, Expatcalidocious.com " ...a vivid description of what it is like to live away from the costas, in a Spanish community. I would highly recommend reading this book if you are contemplating moving to Spain." Sue Walker, author of Retiring the Olé Way: The Young Retiree's Guide to Enjoying Life in Spain "A truly delightful read! An honest, down-to-earth and thoroughly entertaining account of a British couple's first years as expats in southern Spain ... It all adds up to a colourful and often hilarious tale" Linda Palfreeman, author of Crisis in Catral: Spain's Worst Property Scandal Hotspot
