I retired from a long career in tertiary education starting as a lecturer in Microbiology and Biochemistry at a Polytechnic and moving on into management, including a stretch as CEO of a regional polytechnic and finishing with ten years in senior management at a University. My partner Margaret and I share eight grandchildren scattered around the world and we love travelling, both to visit them and other friends, and to find new places.
We love to walk and to tour by bike but our days of carrying heavy packs are behind us. Our latest trip included seven separate weeks at various airbnb apartments around southern France, northern Spain and the UK. That is our style of travel: find an interesting city or village and stay for a week to get to know it well by walking or cycling everywhere.
Wherever we go we like to shop locally for food and attempt to match the regional cuisine by cooking in our accommodation.
If we are hosting you we will show you how everything works and then we will leave you alone to make the most of your holiday, but we will be available if you need us for information or advice.
