Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools

Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools

Author(s): Victoria Twead

Location(s): Spain, Almería (Almeria), Andalusia (Andalucía)

Genre(s): Autobiography/Memoirs, Humour, Travelogue

Era(s): Present day

The first in the hilarious series by New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author.
If Joe and Vicky had guessed what relocating to a tiny mountain village in Andalucía would REALLY be like, they might have hesitated…
They have no idea they’ll become reluctant chicken farmers and own the most dangerous cockerel in Spain. No idea they’ll help capture a vulture or be rescued by a mule.
Will they stay, or return to the relative sanity of England?
Includes Spanish recipes donated by the village ladies.
