A Kiss Behind the Castanets

My love affair with Spain

Jean Roberts

¡Hola!

I’m Jean, welcome to my website. Thank you for dropping by. 12 years ago I was able to fulfil a long held dream of buying our first house in Spain. My book ‘A Kiss Behind the Castanets’ chronicles our journey from our first weekend away househunting until today. It covers the ups (many) and the downs (few), our sometimes embarrassing efforts with the language, and introduces you to some wonderful and colourful people who we have met along the way. Sun and margaritas, with jean roberts
Oranges and my love affair with Spain. What started as a collection of diary entries and emails home has just grown. I will be exploring the mysteries of blogging and will be posting photos, writing about places we visit, sharing recipes and taking a light hearted look at Spain, the food, the culture, and how not to do things. I want to share with you my love for this amazing country and her people. I have been here as a part time ex-pat for 12 years and it is still an adventure, it is still a passion. Come inside, come and join me. Jean Roberts.
