Driving over Lemons: An Optimist in Andalucia is a travel book by Chris Stewart. It was published in 1999. The writer was a drummer for Genesis until he retired from that at 17 and made a complete change to become a sheep shearer and travel writer.
The book is a very engaging look at life on a very remote mountain farm in Andalucia in Spain. They started out with no electricity, running water or road access.
I re-read it just recently, and it was just as good to read as the first time around – which you can't say for all books. The author takes the mickey out of himself with great panache.
The book won't make you want to live there – but you won't regret the time you spent reading it either.
