I’m a journalist, trade unionist and political activist who has moved for a while with my husband and daughter from leafy north London to Órgiva, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Some have asked why swap Hampstead Heath for Las Alpujarras. I have of course asked the same question. But as I write this blog and the stunning Sierra Lujar range feels close enough to touch, I have no doubt that the decision is the right one. This blog will attempt to chronicle how we get on over the next year, and possibly beyond.
