El Escorial

My name is Olly, born and bred in Oxford and now living in sunny Madrid, where I’ve been for the last two years.

I’ve always had a passion for travel and adventure, and have been lucky enough to visit some incredible countries. Now living in Spain I aim to travel and explore as much of this beautiful country as I can.

Living in Madrid has also sparked a new, insatiable passion … mountains – La Sierra. One of my favourite authors – Robert Macfarlane – sums up this passion beautfully:

“By speaking of greater forces than we can possibly invoke, and by confronting us with greater spans of time than we can possibly envisage, mountains refute our excessive trust in the man-made. They pose profound questions about our durability and the importance of our schemes. They induce, I suppose, a modesty in us.” (Mountains of the Mind)

This blog is really a home to my thoughts and I also hope to upload some of my trips and adventures; past, present and future.
