Married to Helen for over 40yrs. We have four adult children and a few grandchildren. Interested in slow food and Helen’s cooking is great, it would be a struggle if I had to give it up but I am not planning to. Work has always been important to me, heavy engineering is my bag; for over 30 yrs now and still at it. Farming is also under my fingernails. We live on a 4ha "hobby farm"; beef animals, sheep, chickens and a big veggie garden. When traveling I like to find out what people are doing in their lives especially if they are into growing stuff, food mostly. The way things are done in New Zealand is different from most other places I think, maybe not hugely but the subtitles of how and why are interesting and worth dicussing on occasions.
Our enduring memories after traveling are generally those of the people we met and the conversations we had.
