About

I’m passionate about local produce at home and away, exploring lesser known parts of Spain, hablo español, and love Japan 日本を大好き where I stayed for a good while. Fresaichigo (fresa苺) comprises both the Spanish and Japanese words for strawberry.

I spent a year in Madrid and a year in León studying Spanish. I love exploring the relatively unknown parts of Spain unspoiled by mass tourism. I am particularly drawn to the north: Castilla y León, Cantabria, Asturias and Galicia. They are so unlike the clichés we have come to know via the media. The countryside is almost magical. Speak a little Spanish and you will be amazed at the warm welcome you will receive.

When not musing about food and drink, travel or speaking Spanish, I can be found climbing things and hanging upside down from a trapeze. From time to time I am quite tempted to run away and join the circus!

Trapeze!
