🌻 I love this corner of the earth....It smiles at me 🌻
Following on from my recent post."I´ve Got My Head In The Clouds" sharing my little corner of the world here in Andalucia, you might ask "Why Spain, Sam?" I´m a northern lass from the north of England and the Pennines (Bronte Country) used to be my wandering ground.
I was a practising Lawyer with a workaholic lifestyle. To say I felt deeply unhappy is an understatement. Never mind the dreary weather.
I spent hours daydreaming and imagining just how different my life could be.
Whenever I let my mind off the leash to go for a wander, my imagination took me across the sea to Spain.
As a little girl, a seed was planted on a childhood holiday. I fell in love with the Spanish countryside on a train journey to Barcelona. As I worked my way through a bag of Sevilla oranges, juice dribbling down my chin, I burst out in excitement “Imagine living here! They have oranges on the trees!”. In my twenties, I visited the Spanish cities of Barcelona, Madrid, Seville and Valencia. The tapas and vino, culture and architecture worked their magic. Not forgetting the sun. Barcelona remains at the top of my list of favourite cities in the world.
Finally, a horseriding holiday in the beautiful Alpujarra foothills and mountains of the Sierra Nevada in Granada gave the seed a good watering. I made a promise to my fellow riders that I would live here one day.
England is my country of birth but I longed for the mountains of Andalucia and felt at home in a place 2000 miles away. There was only one thing I could do, my friend. I had to go after my dream. Because I love this corner of the earth. Just like the sunflowers in the picture. It smiles at me. ○○
