The story can be found in the private edition of my book 'Life on a Basque Mountain' which can be found at the house and is currently with literary agents. Born in Birmingham, I spent many early adult years working in Copenhagen where, finally, my passion for languages and mountains rebelled and drove me south! Two decades later I can say without a doubt that I have lost my heart to the Basque Country and the people of Ituren who have watched over me with a maternal/paternal eye - and often in great amusement - every step of the way. Today, I work with a passionate team of Spanish-Basque teachers, cooks, historians, guides, shepherds and musicians. John Crawshaw, arborculturalist and passionate environmentalist, now takes the lead on our nature-focused walking weeks and my mum, Valerie, gives an invaluable helping hand with the admin (and spell checks!) back in the UK. I couldn't have done it without her!
If you would like to learn more about our lives here in the Pyrenees, the local culture and all sorts of idiosyncratic observations on the Basque history, values, languages etc. then our Blog is full of all sorts of stories taken from our own, personal, Pyrenean Experience.
