I’ve lived in Spain for over 30 years now, 16 of which have been spent here in Asturias. Along with the family I run a small hotel; Posada del Valle which is surrounded by its own organic farm.
I consider myself very lucky living in this most beautiful part of Spain and having time to enjoy and explore it . I love walking and normally go walking once or twice a week depending on other commitments (and any aches or pains.)
I also enjoy growing vegetables in a sustainable way and I am very much against industrial farming. I try to avoid eating food produced in an industrial way and haven’t eaten food of animal origin (except an occasional egg from our chickens) for about 4 years now.
Much to a lot of my fellow walkers’ amazement I find I have very high energy levels with my diet and have no problem walking 8 to 10 hours a day with quite challenging ascents.
