Just before I left Denmark I published my first book, 'Freedom to Choose', and - in many respects - the Pyrenean Experience put theory into practice.
Almost two decades after I first ventured out to the Pyrenees with 'Fred', I can say without a doubt that I have lost my heart to the Basque Country and the people of Ituren. My Basque/Spanish partner, Iñaki, is a professional teacher and family lawyer and, as for my 12 year old daughter, Marion, (equally irrepressible in English, Spanish and Basque) we have yet to see. She loves ballet and maths, has been shepherding sheep on our neighbours' farms since the age of 2 and gives lessons on Spanish tongue twisters to our Spanish language groups!. My mum, Valerie, also gives us an invaluable helping hand with the admin back at base in the UK.
The second book I wrote was 'Breaking the Language Barrier' and served very much as an inspiration for the Spanish language house-parties we run today. The next will - I hope - if time, work and motherhood allow - pay homage to the beauty of these Basque valleys and the wonderful Basque friends we have found. Georgina G. Howard.
