Spain

A handful of posts from Spain. We’ll be going returning someday…when we can speak Spanish.

Sierra de Guara National Park, Spain

The Sierra de Guara is what’s known as a mountain massif in the province of Huesca, the most northerly province in the autonomous community of Aragon, Spain.

Correfoc – Mercé festival Barcelona

Insane. I’m lucky to be alive. There we were, standing in the middle of Plaça Antoni Maura with increasingly large numbers of people building up in front of a huge model of “the gates of hell”, complete with fierce-looking dragon. On the right was a huge collection of people beating out a very intimidating rhythm […]

During the trip I visited Bilbao, Biarritz and Bayonne in France, and several smaller villages along the Basque coast. There will be a podcast on its […]

The airspace is still closed over: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Latvia, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, UK. It is partly closed […]


Podcast: Starting an internet business in Spain

[Download MP3 | Add to iTunes | Subscribe to Podcasts] Finally, I’ve managed to get around to doing an Earthoria podcast, the first since the Eco Yoga Park in Argentina, in June 2009. In this podcast I talk about what I’ve been doing since leaving Argentina in July 2009 – namely, setting up an internet […]
