New Life Marbella Lead Psychologist

Andy Sawyer

WILDERNESS CONSULTANT

Hello my name is Andy James Sawyer. I want to take you on a journey crossing the void over to the other side of southern Spain. After travelling extensively in mountainous and jungle regions of the world, from the Andes in Peru to the jungles of south east Asia, I still find one of the most captivating regions I’ve lived in and travelled through is the unknown, true side of Andalusia. I could compare beaches in the Costa de la Luz to beaches in Australia, and Andalusian high rocky trails to Apache Native American Indian trails in the Appalachian Mountains.
