Beyond Imagination : When the Adventure of a Lifetime Becomes a Lifetime of Adventures
Craig Briggs's bestselling Journey to a Dream told the true-life story of his dream move to Spain with wife Melanie and their dog Jazz. Not for them the tourist-packed Costas of the Mediterranean or the hills of Andalucia; they chose Galicia, an unspoilt paradise in the northwest corner of Spain. In Beyond Imagination Craig and Melanie begin to realise their dream as they finally move in to their new home - El Sueno. Transforming their barren plot into a garden oasis tests both his resolve and physique, and an eye for a bargain sends them on a quest to secure a national treasure. As the adventures unfold new challenges appear. Village neighbours are quick to introduce themselves and eager to assist when a communications oversight jeopardises their future, but even they are powerless to help when planning officialdom threatens to shatter their dream. Stroll hand in hand with Craig and Melanie as they settle in to their new surroundings, and journey with them as they embark on a life Beyond Imagination.

About Craig Briggs
Craig left full-time education aged eighteen and began a career in retail. At the age of 28, he found his true vocation after buying into a small printing business. After 13 years of blood, sweat, and holding back the tears, he sold up to pursue his dream. In May 2002, two months before his fortieth birthday, Craig, his wife Melanie and their pet dog Jazz squeezed all their worldly goods into their aging executive saloon and headed off to Spain. Not for them the tourist packed Costas of the Mediterranean coast or the hills of Andalusia, no, they headed for Galicia, a remote and little known region in the northwest corner of Spain. Craig began writing a weekly column for an online magazine in 2004. Over the last few years he has written a number of articles for the Trinity Mirror Group and online publications such as: CNN, My Destination, and Insiders Abroad. In 2013 he published his first travel memoir Journey To A Dream. It tells the story of a turbulent first 12 months in Galicia. His latest book, Beyond Imagination, continues the adventure as they settle in to their new home and surroundings. As well as writing, Craig and his wife Melanie own a traditional Galician farmhouse which they rent to tourists from around the world. He's also an enthusiastic wine maker and currently works two small vineyards.
