I have a one-way ticket out of the country for January 1st. However, it started to snow today. Flights were cancelled and so fingers are crossed that I will have a window out of here in two weeks time.
There is an offer of a rent free house, in a small commuter town, near Madrid. Some building work needs doing on the house, which I can busy myself with. A yard for container growing, if I find myself still in the house in March.
I shall live in the downsized style that I have gotten used to. The house has all the mod cons but I won't make use of them. No fridge, a wasteful luxury. A local supermarket will act as my fridge. I will only take two bags with clothes and a few other items. I will take my home-grown onions and potatoes plus some of my never ending sack of rice. You will all be kept up to date on my progress via a netbook and my skills at piggy-backing on free (or otherwise) wifi connections.
As the winter passes, I shall work my way to northern Spain, on the look out for land and a liveable (for me, a roof and four sturdy walls) house.
Next week sees the solstice and the return of the Sun. The darkness has been getting me down for the past few weeks. Happy solstice / Christmas / New Year etc. etc.
