Our general blog - anything that doesn't fit into our more specific blogs!

The Healthy Living in Spain blog is written by Richard (Dick) Handscombe who has lived and gardened in Spain for almost thirty years. As the traditional agricultural activity in the valley declined and ceased to be even vaguely ecological, he and his wife Clodagh set out - for health and economic reasons - to grow the majority of their food, and to do so ecologically. They have written some 21 books, together and separately, many of them about various aspects of healthy living and gardening to both of which they take a holistic approach. Month by month, Dick will discuss essential issues related to healthy natural living in Spain.

Contributed by Dick Handscombe - Spain's best known expatriate gardening author - who has gardened here now for 26 years. Dick has written a series of gardening books and more than a thousand articles in newspapers and magazines, as well as doing radio and television spots.

Blog author Richard Handscombe's intention is to provide practical ideas for all walkers, from the one-hour stroller to the stronger one-day walkers, not forgetting those hardier types interested in two month treks! He has lived and walked in Spain for over 25 years. As a joint celebration of his retirement, recovery from cancer, proving his earlier ski-shocked knees were now repaired and taking his first pension draw-down, Richard walked 950 kilometres in 52 days (including six rest days). With just his then novia Clodagh and with no mobile phone to interupt the peace of the wilderness, the walk started at the Bay of Biscay and ended on the Mediterranean Beaches. That was some years ago and now, at 76 years young, Richard says he will not be repeating this feat - it was a one off personal oddysey, He still walks most days in and above the Spanish mountain valley in which he lives. In Richards own words, "I look forward to giving you some proven ideas, but be patient as it is simply not possible to cover Spain in just a few posts"
