We found a place for Laura to stay (with a friend in Wellington) for a couple of months whilst she wrote more of her travel book.
When Aitor's family came to visit they brought with them a gift basket for me from Laura's mother. When Laura paid us her final visit she and I selected a pair of socks for her mother and Aitor's family took them to Madrid for her before head back to Basque country.
Cool how travelling broadens your experience of the world....
