I would like to introduce you to Margaret and Chris Robinson of Puerto Soller. These days they are content in the paradise they have created for themselves in the Soller Valley. The love their lives here and would not live anywhere else. Just peel back the layers a little and what do you find behind their settled exterior?
Margaret and Chris are originally from the Lake District, around Kendal. A Civil Servant and a Policeman got together and made their vows on 12th August 1961. They were happy living their lives, progressing in their careers and bringing up their daughter. There was an amazing amount of planning going on in the background because these two were never going to settle for an unchallenged life. They decided, from very early on, that they had one life and they wanted to see the world.
Travel in the 1960’s wasn’t quite the comfortable experience it is today with fine hotels in all locations and credit cards to keep you moving round the globe. Margaret and Chris tell tales of hostels and rooms along the way of their treks. There was no TUI to take care of all the details, the adventures and blunders were all theirs.
