I'm from Brighton on the south coast of England. It is a vibrant alternative town with beautiful streets and hills outside the town. I used to travel a lot when I was younger and worked abroad from time to time. Then I had to settle down and now I just take holidays. I am enjoying exploring my own country but also occasionally go somewhere abroad. Last year I went to Argentina - partly to learn Tango - and partly for the fun of it. I am a very active person with lots of interests. My main one is dancing - usually swing dancing but have dabbled in others - e.g. tango, tap, etc. I particularly love 1930's-1950s swing music. Another hobby is being creative - printmaking, drawing, photography, sewing, knitting, etc. I speak Spanish, German and some French - and am an interpreter by profession (British Sign Language). I live with my fiance Paul who is now my travelling companion!
