New blogger at Iberianature?

Monday, March 17th, 2014

cliveI thought I would introduce myself 🙂 I guess I am a writer, photographer, Webmaster, Administrator and Holiday Coordinator. I have lived in Spain for over 12 years and during the last 8 in the beautiful village of Grazalema in Western Andalucia. My passion is wildlife and it’s connection to people. I am a founding member of The Iberianature Forum, the best (and only) English language resource for anyone who is interested in the nature, culture and history of Spain.

I spent the years January 2009 to January 2014 running the tourist information office in the village of Grazalema and dealing with over 2000 visitors to my office every month certainly took its toll. So, after I decided to close my office and “retire” hahaha, I was very happy that Nick asked me to write a few posts here on Iberianature.

I have recently created the Iberianature Business Directory of nature and wildlife companies in Spain.

I am the webmaster, sales manager and coordinator for Wildside Holidays and the greater part of my work goes on behind the scenes, making sure hotels are working well for our customers and organising the daily routine of breakfasts, lunches and evening meals.

The major projects I am involved with are: – The Business Directory – Blogging about the various aspects of Spanish wildlife, geography and history. – My nature walking holiday company – The best English language forum about the nature of Spain – My Grazalema tourist office website (spanish language mostly)

I guess I am not “retired” yet! I hope you enjoy my posts and links…

Accomodation in the biological station in the heart of Ordesa National Park for groups of 15-20 persons. PS This is not a commercial advert, but a personal recommendation. More
