John Bottrill

Biography

John Bottrill , Galicia, Spain
A retired academic, I've been living in comfort in Northern Spain - a region like the Lake District, but with good weather for 12 years. This place has magic. It's the nicest place I've ever lived. Personally, I'd happily live and eventually die here. But family reasons necessitate a return to UK.
The house is stone-built 1691 with some land and lots of space for guests who come to find out more about the area, or just to think about a new life in Northern Spain. You can see the house at smallholdinginparadise.blogspot.com.es - it's paradise!
You can read a book about the early Boterel family, which came to UK with William the Conquerer, at www.bottrillfamilyhistory.com or http://bottrillfamilyhistory.blogspot.com.es. For unusual children's books or Palmistry you might try http;//ebook0.blogspot.com - this also has a Scottish romance, unusual in that it deals with the machinations of the Priory of Sion.
