Living in a secret Spanish valley in the heart of the campo is a daily feast of nature, wildlife and food. We are surrounded by wild land, olive groves, forests of encima oak trees grazed by Iberian black pigs, and arable farm land which grows wheat one season and sunflowers the next.
This award-winning blog shares our daily experiences, achievements, failures and laughter as we live deep in the Spanish-speaking countryside side-by-side with the locals. The secret valley changes from day to day from one season to the next. I hope you read this blog and grow to love rural Andalucía as much as we do.
I am an author and journalist. Read my fiction, my thoughts and ideas on the process of writing, and reviews of new and classic fiction at SandraDanby. My two novels – Ignoring Gravity and Connectedness – explore the themes of identity, family secrets and adoption reunion. I’m now writing Sweet Joy, third in the series, set in London during The Blitz.
