Growing up in the cold, wet, north of England, Nina Croft spent a lot of time dreaming of faraway sunnier places
and ponies. When she discovered both, along with a whole load of other things,
could be found between the covers of a book, her life changed forever.
Later, she headed south, picked
up the perfect husband along the way, and together they volunteered to work in
Africa. There they discovered a love of exotic places and a dislike of 9-5
work. Afterward they spent a number of years travelling (whenever possible) intermingled
with working (whenever necessary.) Eventually they stumbled upon a remote area in
the mountains of southern Spain and the small almond farm they now call home.
Nina spends her days reading,
writing and riding her mare, Gencianna, under the blue Spanish skies—sunshine
and ponies. She reckons this is proof that dreams really can come true if you
want them enough.
