Hi

I am Ana, retired teacher after 31 years teaching French and Spanish in the UK.

I am divorced and live alone with my dalmatian dog. Although I am a Spanish citizen I have lived longer in the uk than here and I feel more like the Derbyshire lass I have been for decades than a local!!!

I don't know anyone here and what little I remembered from my youth is gone. I am having to get used to the Spanish ways too....not an easy task!

I paint and presently have an exhibition on in Cartagena, bar El Vinagrillo, Calle Canales, if you are passing. Unsurprisingly, my exhibition is called "This is my Derbyshire". 

I have also done translation and interpreting jobs in my career.

I would love to have a drink with you sometime and hear your story!!!

Call me, 622173587

Hi Chris/Ana,

I have just come across your post and would love to know more please. I am a retired woman on my own who moved to La Manga a year a go and have struggled to meet people, your monthly lunch meet ups sound like a perfect opportunity.
