What makes Craig Briggs memoir "Journey to a Dream" stand apart form many other memoirs is his ability to draw a person into his story through his use of language. He uses beautifully descriptive narratives to paint with words not only his personal journey but also the various journeys through the landscapes of Galicia in Spain. It is these descriptions that prevent the reader from becoming immune to the endless frustrations of delays that characterise the issues affecting the author, his wife and their faithful friend Jazz. While there are frustrations experienced in their journey to their dream, the author recognises them as the differences in psyche of another culture, not in a negative way but just in a simplistic view that every culture has it's own way of living and perceiving life.
Journey to a Dream is highly recommended as a thoroughly enjoyable read, possibly even better if the reader is acquainted with the area of Galicia.
Kudos to Craig and Melanie for fulfilling their dream. Even more kudos for sharing that dream in books and places to visit with the rest of us. May all your dreams continue to come true!
The book is about a husband and wife and their dog, dreaming of living in another country, but living some place remote and different. They chose a country Spain and found a small quaint town to make their home. With the language barrier and being in a different country than the one they were from, made for some interesting stories. The writer really explained in detail of life in the town, telling us about they needed to find a home to purchase and the difficulty with that situation, and finding someone who spoke English in the small town. They did find someone to help translate the language, they had met many local people and seemed to love their new relaxed lifestyle, I am just not sure how relaxed it was for them. It is an awesome read. If you love watching and reading books about traveling and design your own home in a new country this book is for you, the dream is awesome. I love that he wrote this story, I think I would have given up, but I can tell you from reading this book that if you keep pursuing your dream you can do it.
