AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A foot-stamping, full-on firecracker of a travel memoir, crackling with energy, dance, gypsies, love, food and the occasional donkey. Nellie Bennett fell in love with flamenco one hot summer day in a Sydney dance studio. Longing to get closer to the authentic experience, she packed her suede dance shoes and a set of castanets and travelled to the other side of the world, to Seville, to learn flamenco.

'What she didn't realise is that flamenco is not a dance, it's a way of life.

'In Spain, she fell in love three times - the first time with a smokey-eyed flamenco dance teacher, the second time, with a wild and tempestuous gypsy; and the third with a tall, dark handsome Basque chef - not realising that, all along, it's really Spain she's fallen in love with. A witty, passionate story of romance and discovery.' (Publisher's blurb)
