Patricia Raczkowski, born in Canada of a Spanish mother and Polish father, grew up in Spain and has lived there most of her life. She spent her final year of high school in Washington State, living with an American family, and then attended the University of Madrid to study veterinary medicine. She practiced as a veterinary nurse in England before returning to Spain, where she settled in the Alpujarras region. Patricia is a wonderful guide who knows history, customs, and hiking trails of southern Spain very well.
