Hello and welcome to burntlemons!

2016 The very beginning of our journey!

This blog is about sharing our (mis)adventures of buying, building and transforming our home and garden in La Alpujarra, Spain.

I know! I know! I can hear you groaning…many people dream of living life in the sunshine, growing vegetables and being self-sufficient, ‘going green’, and taking daily siestas etc.  but we have decided to actually live the dream! Or at least try very hard to!

I hope you enjoy reading about our adventures on the way to a simpler, self sufficient life in the sun.
