Friendly and well-travelled. Am mature but not stuffy! Spent 2010 travelling on my own in SE Asia, Australia and NZ. Lived on four continents. Love meeting interesting people from different cultures. Love good food and wine, and especially pastries. Practice yoga and meditation. Am also a Reiki practitioner and teach English to local business people.
Currently studying Ayurveda and Aromatherapy as love to use essential oils for maintaining wellness.
My two favorite cities are New York, where I lived for 20 odd years, and Barcelona. This is the third time round that I've lived here. Paris is my second favorite cause am split evenly between NY and BCN. I do love Sydney too as think it's spectacularly beautiful and the people lovely. Very different though of course.
Also love the cinema, theatre and music. And going to art exhibitions and meeting friends for a cup of tea or a glass of wine. I feel deprived when unable to connect with friends, either in person or via internet when too much to do in too little time. Fortunately, my soul demands I stop the merry-go-round and connect with friends here or overseas. Or my friends demand that I do. Thank heavens!
