Perhaps I can best describe myself by explaining how a globetrotting New Zealander ended up with houses smack in the middle of Andalusia and France.
Like most kiwis (our way of saying NZer) I got bitten by a wanderbug very early on. By the age of seventeen, I had already been hitchhiking in Europe. Once I got my teacher training out of the road I was quickly off again.
First stop was 6 months in Asia, followed by a stint teaching in Japan, but the goal was always Europe and the UK.
A fascination with the Granada playwright and poet Federico Garcia Lorca lead me not only to southern Spain but more specifically to Granada. I suppose buying the house there was some sort of attempt at making a connection.
I didn't leave it there though.
My next teaching post saw me establishing a Theatre Arts course in Hong Kong and it was a Lorca play that kicked off that whole programme. That first show, an extract from 'Blood Wedding', was staged under moonlight in the bay below the school, lit by burning torches; all rather eerie and haunting. Lorca resurfaced a year or two later as well. We staged a bunraku puppet version of 'The House of Bernarda Alba' (using puppets about half the size of their operators).
Well, that gives you some idea of the background of the owner of the house and maybe a bit of a glimpse into how rich Granada is in literature, as well as history as well. Its easy to get captivated by Granada's magic and mystery as I did.
Our place in France was bought for similar romantic, rather than purely rational, reasons. I had been hunting for an old stone property to do up for several years. What we finally found was everything we'd hoped for and more. The few acres we have on the edge of a stream is covered in woods and fruit trees. The stone house is our project. We are well on the way now to breathing new life into this wonderful old farmhouse and look forward to sharing it with family and friends, old and new. It, too, has its own magic.
