In 1935 a young Englishman named Laurie Lee arrived in Spain. He had never been overseas; had hardly even left the quiet village he grew up in. His idea was to walk through the country, earning money for food by playing his violin in bars and plazas.
Nearly a century later, the book Laurie Lee wrote – As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning – inspired me.
I dreamed of retracing Laurie Lee’s footsteps, but could never get past the hurdle of being distinctly unmusical. In the end, I decided to go anyway.
