Bravo! That was a great interview. She hit on a lot of points that I’ve been thinking about, but she is much more eloquent. I like the analogy of selecting your favorite moves from a buffet.

Cool interview, and as with Ed Beneville, I liked what she had to say about training in regards to learning rather ‘winning’ or ‘losing’ etc.

Out of interest, where are you heading in Spain? Basque country, or somewhere new (I can remember you mentioning you were heading out on my blog, but not the region)?

When I got back from Seville, Jude told me there are loads of clubs in Spain, which I didn’t realise: I thought it was just in Marbella and Barcelona.

Wine tours sound tasty too, although I’ve always been terrible with wine – tastes all the same to me. Hence why sherry is much easier, as even I can tell a dry fino from a really thick syrupy Pedro Ximénez. ;)

Yeah it looks like we might be heading somewhere besides Europe this summer. With the exchange rate right now it doesn’t make sense. :(

If we were to go it would probably include the Basque Country, Catalonia, Madrid, and Galicia (not in that order). One of these days perhaps…
