SPANISH IMPRESSIONS

SPANISH IMPRESSIONS (book)

Print: £13.24

Robert Bovington is an Englishman living in Spain. He is so enthralled with his adopted country that it has inspired him to write about his experiences. From Almería in sun-kissed Andalucía to Zaragoza in historic Aragón, the author takes us on a tour of Spain. We visit the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Córdoba’s Mezquita and the Cathedral at Santiago de Compostela. We explore Spain’s diverse natural landscapes – the Picos de Europa, the Sierra Nevada and the vast plains of La Mancha. During our travels, we will encounter famous Spaniards – Isaac Albéniz, Pablo Picasso and many others. Football, fiestas and flamenco are experienced whilst food and drink, Spanish style, is on the menu. We will encounter Romanesque cathedrals, Gothic churches, Moorish castles, Modernist civil buildings and beautiful plazas. Throughout the journey, the keyword is diversity. It is this diversity that has inspired Robert Bovington to provide us with his “Spanish Impressions”

SPANISH MATTERS

SPANISH MATTERS (e-book)

eBook: £6.00

Bob and Diane have made the life-changing decision to retire to sunny Andalucía. Instead of lazing on the beach they explore the countryside of their adopted country. They visit ‘pueblos blancos’ in the Alpujarras. They enjoy the wonderful scenery of Andalusia. On one such journey to the medieval city of Ronda they discover the spectacular Sierra de las Nieves – a biosphere reserve. This type of encounter is to be repeated throughout their expeditions. They experience the stark beauty of the Tavernas desert; the enchanting Palmeral of Elche; the grandeur of the Sierra Nevada and the fantastically diverse landscapes of the Cabo de Gata with its unique flora and fauna. On their journeys they explore the culture and customs of the Andalucian people – tapas, fiestas, music, soccer, bad driving, noisy Spaniards. In short, Bob and Diane have fallen in love with their newly adopted country and are looking forward to visiting other areas of Spain and learning the language properly because Spanish matters!
