Spain has always had a strong attraction for Joanna. While she was studying in Andalusia, she was drawn to flamenco and this in turn led her to explore the Spanish way of life. After working in television in the U.K., she travelled extensively for two years’ in Asia and Latin America where she always sought the hidden treasures.
