I work part time by choice and travel when I can afford to, mostly Europe. I enjoy fine arts, history, gardens, good food and scenic views.
I speak a little Spanish, some basic Italian, and some very rusty French. As a guest, I like a degree of comfort and quiet. I'm a quiet and considerate guest and take care of places and things as if they were my own.
Some of the things I can't live without are black coffee, music (classical, opera and choral), curiosity, chocolate, green spaces, time for quiet reflection, joy and my dog.
