I live in a little house in the woods on an island near Seattle with my golden retriever, Maggie. I was born in London, grew up in England, have traveled widely - to Australia, Nepal, Brazil and lots of places in Europe; my daughter now lives in London and I go there as often as I can. I am fortunate to live in a beautiful, unspoiled place that's heaven for people, like me, who love the outdoors and enjoy the water and the mountains; I am a rower and kayaker and hiker, and love to garden. I enjoy meeting and sharing experiences with people from widely diverse cultures and countries, both as a traveler and as a host. My style is relaxed, informal and easygoing, and I am a considerate and courteous guest. I look forward to sharing stories with you our next adventure.
