This is the inspirational story of moving to a new country with nothing, then really living your dreams.
Turning up in Madrid without a word of Spanish, Ben soon finds a job, beautiful language exchanges, amazing journeys to the depths of Spain, and wild fiestas.
Then he meets Marina, buys a scarily run-down flat in Madrid’s wild Lavapies neighbourhood, and really takes the cultural plunge.
Incomprehensible meals with endless Spanish in-laws, residents’ meetings where not only his flat but his whole livelihood, and sanity, are on the line... Not to mention Medallion Manolo, the hunter-builder from hell…
Errant in Iberia is a complete picture of the troubles and delights of a new life abroad, of Spain as it enters the 21st Century, and of Spain’s most intriguing travel destinations.
