Just before I left Denmark I published my first book, 'Freedom to Choose', and - in many respects - the Pyrenean Experience put theory into practice.
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. I work with a passionate team of Spanish / Basque teachers, cooks, historians, guides, shepherds and musicians as well as my teenage !!! daughter, Marion, who specialises in tongue-twisters on our Spanish immersion weeks! She loves ballet and maths and has shepherded sheep on our neighbours' farms since the age of 2. My mum, Valerie, also gives an invaluable helping hand with the admin back in the UK. I couldn't have done it without her!
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.
