I am a retired High School teacher.I taught English and Ancient History to Year 12. I gave up teaching 3 years ago and spend my newly found time travelling. I went to Jakarta just before Christmas and am off to Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos in March. My husband loves walking and is off to walk the St Jacques walk in France. I love reading and the latest book I loved was 'The Sense Of An Ending' which won the Booker award. I also love films especially ones that make you think, although I love a good thriller as well. I have house swapped including a young couple from Paris and recently had successful tenants from (website hidden). All loved the stay in our home. My life's motto is ' live life to the fullest'.
