I spend most of my time mooching around Spain, ostensibly researching articles for national newspapers and magazines, but really just sitting in cafés, reading the paper and drinking wine.
I write for The Daily and Sunday Telegraph and am their Madrid expert. I’ve also contributed to The Guardian and Observer, The Times, The Financial Times, The Sunday Times Travel Magazine, The Independent and Independent on Sunday, Travel Weekly, Conde Nast Traveller, Tatler, Elle, Red, Time Out & various airline magazines. My latest book is Insight Explore Madrid (January 2018) and I’ve also written National Geographic Traveler Madrid, Blue Guide Madrid, Blue Guide Barcelona and Art Shop Eat Barcelona. I’ve somehow won a few awards over the years, including Spain Travel Writer of the Year.
Really interesting stuff… but nothing on Charlton Athletic?
Hi Alex! Some things are definitely best left to the experts…

Thanks! Did you read the post about our thrilling day in Consuegra?
Nice story about Aviles Annie – and particularly like the way you use a crocheted bonnet to evaluate the true character of a place! Nick
