It’s a privilege for me to be able to hear the stories of other expats who have chosen the rural lifestyle here in Mallorca. This island is a magnet for fascinating people and if I had time to do more interviews, I’d certainly never run out of interesting subjects for this podcast.
My latest guest is not only a well-qualified translator with some top-notch international clients, but also an accomplished artist. Some of her art was chosen to become part of the décor of a boutique hotel in Lisbon.
Sylvia Baker de Perkal and I sat in the pretty garden of her finca for our conversation, with the background sounds of birds, peacocks, and her rescue dogs. How rural is that!
I hope you’ll enjoy listening. The show notes include Sylvia’s website details, as well as websites for some of the animal refuges on the island (there are many more).
