About Robert Bovington

Robert Bovington is an English writer of travel books. These include “Spanish Matters” and “Spanish Impressions”

Robert Bovington was born in Brighton, East Sussex, the son of Leonard and Audrey Bovington. He is the first-born and has eight siblings – six brothers and two sisters.

Having worked for many years in both the telecommunications industry and the teaching profession, Robert wanted to take on new challenges. He and Diane decided to relocate to Spain and, in 2003, the couple moved to Roquetas de Mar in sunny Andalucía. However, lazing on the beach was not Robert’s idea of fun – he wanted to explore his new homeland. It didn’t stop there! He was so impressed with Spain, its countryside, its historic cities and its culture that it inspired him to write about his experiences.

Robert Bovington has been married to Diane for over thirty years. They have no children. However, Robert’s short marriage to Helene resulted in twin daughters Carole and Sheila. The author is also a grandfather and great grandfather.

Robert met Diane when both belonged to the Crescent Operatic Society. Music is one of the author’s great passions. At primary school he sang in a choir in a concert of Bach and Handel. Another of his interests is football and for many years he supported Brighton & Hove Albion home and away. His favourite premiership team is Arsenal. Other interests include information technology, writing and ten-pin bowling.

    Hello Robert

    Thanks for reblogging my post about the Alhambra Palace in the beautiful Andalucian city of Granada, and for subscribing to my blog http://www.eastofmalaga.wordpress.com

    Spain is a wonderfully diverse country with a rich, cultural heritage and wonderful, friendly people. I consider myself very fortunate to have made the Axarquia my home for the past few years.
