I have been going back and forth to the El Maestrat, Castellon for 13 years, striving towards the dream of a simpler, more fulfilling way of life. It started with a ruin in the middle of nowhere. After many adventures, trials and tribulations, and by some miracle, the dream is coming into focus. This is my blog of living totally off-grid up a mountain – no mains water, no mains electricity, no post, TV or any of that other stuff. And definitely less worries.
It has been and continues to be a rollercoaster ride, exhilarating, scary and always amazing. I feel Spanish, I do not look Spanish, but surely must have been in another life? I hope you will enjoy reading these vignettes with all their foibles and nuttinesses. It is done for love of this amazing area and its people.
