Audiobook: Fiestas and Siestas Miles Apart

After recording the audiobook of Nemesis last year, I’ve been looking for more opportunities in that area. At the beginning of this year, I recorded a short audiobook on British garden birds; and in the middle of April, I started work on the audiobook for Fiestas and Siestas Miles Apart, by Alan Cuthbertson. This is a humorous non-fiction book about Alan and his family’s decision to move from Britain to Spain, with plenty of anecdotes about the difficulties encountered, and the culture of the Spanish countryside.

I very much enjoyed doing this audiobook. The material itself was great fun to record, but there was also the challenge involved. It required me to practice a range of accents: not only Spanish, but Yorkshire and Scottish. There were also plenty of Spanish words to be pronounced correctly: the Spanish evening course I did in preparation for my first trip to Guatemala came in handy!

Fiestas and Siestas Miles Apart is currently available on Audible and Amazon.
