Hey, I'm Marina!
Colmenar, Andalucía, Spain · Member since October 2011

I am an experienced Thai Yoga Massage therapist and reflexologist originally from Ireland but I have lived in Tanzania, East Africa, Bermuda, England, India, France and Colombia and have travelled extensively in several continents.

My husband, Nacho, is from Malaga and has worked for over 20 years in the restaurant and catering world and has been a 'maitre d' in five star hotels and Michelin starred restaurants. He is an extremely kind and generous as well as fun and a great cook.

We both feel our best roles are those of service and doing what we can to make people's experiences of life that much richer and more fun. We are positve, intelligent, easy-going, fun-loving people who love open-minded, open-hearted folk, nature, literature, art, film, photography, travel,yoga, horse-riding and animals in general, hiking, dancing, music, great food and wine and all kinds of exploring amongst loads of other things.

My professional background also includes working with young people in difficult circumstances, rehabilitation of street children and those with alcohol and drug dependency as well as physically and sexually abused young people. I am in the process of getting the first programme of 'Youth at Risk' off the ground in Spain.

I'd like to think there is nothing I can't live without but fresh air and good vibes definitely keep me alive in more ways than one! I feel totally at home here in Spain, am very well-integrated and love the lifestyle and joie de vivre of the Andalusians, their fiestas and traditions as well as Islamic architecture, of which the Alhambra in Granada, only an hour and a half away from our house is Spain's finest example. We adore much of Asia and many things about it, particularly its aesthetic, gentleness and food and equally love South America and Africa and much of Europe - so many great places!

We love the old Celtic idea that every stranger is a potential friend and we live by that in our home and on our travels. We are very independent, adventurous travellers and feel blessed to have travelled the world as widely as we have and had the extraordinarily amazing experiences we have had, often thanks to the hospitality and generosity of strangers as well as the incredible landscapes and soundtracks which have accompanied us.
