Interview: Louise Metherell
Louise Metherell has been a friend of Spain Buddy’s Elle for many years. She has enjoyed many a lovely evening with Louise at a particular bar in Southsea, Portsmouth, supping wine or cocktails while putting the world to rights.
We were thrilled when Louise chose to move to Spain a few years after we did, along with her husband. Louise is bubbly and enthusiastic, and time spent with her is always fun.
