I'm a thoughtful and tolerant spirit, with a warm sense of humour, who lives on the island of Islay, Scotland, famous for its malt whiskey, beautiful coastline and friendly people. I work as a teacher of Literature and theatre for younger students. (For (phone number hidden) I am on a sabbatical.) My favourite places include Barcelona, much of Portugal and south India. I hope to go to Argentina and Brasil before my teeth fall out. I'm an independent traveler; my favourite expression is: "When the axe came into the forest, the trees said the handle is one of us."
I'd be a considerate guest and very respectful of your home and of you, as I hope you would be of me. I'm clean and trustworthy and want to have a wonderful experience. Music, film, art and literature are my passions and I have been thought of as a very decent cook of Indian food and would be happy to share recipes. I prefer quiet to noise, though I've got joie de vivre and am sociable, mostly the only thing keeping me up at night is a trip to jazz or fado bar and/or fulfilling conversation. (My Portuguese and Spanish is mostly instructional and questioning. Or even questionable.) Para a vida.
