My husband and I live in the countryside outside Derry ~ Londonderry, near the border of the republic of Ireland, with a sweeping view of the city from atop the Foyle River. Together with out cat, wee Nacho, we enjoy the company of family and good friends, good food and drink, and, living in Ireland, the craic. Having met and lived in Miami, we love the beach, the sun, and visits from our friends back in Florida. When we travel, we like to be comfortable and relaxed, marveling at local architecture, customs, people, and food.
