I live in Manchester with my husband and our two cats - George the tabby moggy and Margaret the rescue rag doll. I love reading - Bill Bryson, Daphne du Maurier, Alexander McCall Smith, Jane Austen...and many, many others. I've worked in China and Russia, though currently I work in the rather less interesting area of Burnley! I really enjoy travelling, as you'd expect...particularly interested in the States though I'd love to go back to China and New Zealand. I try learning languages but I'm no good at them, alas. I collect art, wine, enjoy sailing and spend far too much time looking for my next holiday on the internet!
Style of travelling - I enjoy mixing up posh hotels, b&bs and staying with friends and family. Good food is really important to me! Husband is a vege so we eat vege at home - restaurants are my chance to eat meat and I often take up the opportunity!
