If life deals you a bad hand, don’t fold, take a chance; a good player will always come out on top.

Craig Briggs was born on the 12th of July 1962, in St. Luke’s Hospital, Huddersfield, the second child, and only son, of Donald and Glenys Briggs. The birth of their daughter had been a joy. The arrival of Craig would make the family complete. Unfortunately, Craig was not a ‘normal’ lad; he’d been born with congenital feet deformities.
Unaware of his disability, Craig got on with life as any infant would. His first birthday brought a gift that would change his life forever. A marvel of modern engineering, manufactured by J.E. Hanger and Co. of London for and on behalf of the National Health Service. Bespoke footwear gave him what the Vespa had

Hi Annemarie

Thanks for your question and thanks for showing an interest. I hadn't noticed it was missing. Here is the final part of my bio.

The bank had taken a second charge on the partners’ homes and his investment was swallowed up in a black hole of debt. Just when things couldn’t get any worse, the bank called in the overdraft. While others worried, he applied himself to the problem. Through hard work and determination they weathered the storm, but casualties were high.
After thirteen years of blood, sweat, and holding back the tears, he ended up owning a modestly successful little business. The time was right to begin his journey to a dream.
Craig’s writing career began in 2004 when he was asked to pen a weekly column for an online magazine. 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 twelve months in Galicia. Since then he has added Beyond Imagination, Endless Possibilities and Opportunities Ahead to The Journey series.
As well as writing, Craig is an enthusiastic winemaker and owns a small vineyard.

As well as this bio there is an earlier and much lengthier bio on my website, along with a few family photos. If you're interested, here's the link http://www.journeytoadream.co.uk/biog...(less)

You Can Forget Seven Years in Tibet

Nineteen years ago today, Melanie and I arrived in Galicia, Spain to begin what has been an amazing journey. Who would have thought that we would rent a Swiss-style house for twelve months, buy a tiny bungalow and build it into a Mediterranean-style villa, purchase a rural farmhouse, restore it and sell it to buyers from the States, acquire a romantic ruin and convert it into a luxury holiday let, Read more of this blog post »
