That was until her sister hired an au pair from a rural part of the island who said it was the most beautiful place on earth. During a visit, Anna impulsively decided to buy a ruined farmhouse. . But she found herself drawn away from the bustle, stress and the superficial media world towards the tranquil life. She soon realised that her new existence was more enriching and fulfilling. She was learning to live life for its moments rather than race through it in the fast lane. A Lizard in My Luggage explores Mallorca’s fiestas and traditions, as well as the ups and downs of living in a rural retreat. It is about learning to appreciate the simple things and take risks in pursuit of real happiness. Most importantly, it shows that life can be lived between two places.

While marathon training in the Tramuntana mountains – a UNESCO world heritage site – she is spooked when delving into the myths and Moorish legends that still seem to haunt the surrounding hills, as she examines the ancient remains of ice houses and huts of charcoal burners and hears tales of terrifying brigands that ruled the area in the seventeenth century. And she even finds time to hike the Camino de Santiago along the way…
