This is the inspirational story of moving to a new country with nothing, then really living your dreams.
Turning up in Madrid without a word of Spanish, Ben soon finds a job, beautiful language exchanges, amazing journeys to the depths of Spain, and wild fiestas.
Then he meets Marina, buys a scarily run-down flat in Madrid’s wild Lavapies neighbourhood, and really takes the cultural plunge.

“Ben has a real gift for anecdote (reminiscent of Bill Bryson) and also for evocative description, and if you read the first few pages I predict you’ll stay with it to the end.” Amazon.com review
“This book gives a great insight into life in Madrid as a foreigner. I could not wait to continue reading it each day. I would recommend it to anyone with an interest in living in Spain or just for pure escapism. Well done.” Amazon.co.uk review
