I run a quality management consultancy and love what I do. These days, I work part time by choice and travel whenever I can, especially to Europe, with Italy, France and Spain high on my list. Art, history, gardening, food, wine and scenic views are some of the things I seek out while travelling. favourites. I speak a little (emphasise little !) Spanish, some basic Italian, and some terribly rusty French. As a guest, I like a degree of comfort but am pretty easy (I think): definitely quiet, no loud music or noise, and I take care of anywhere that I stay as if it were my own.
Things I can't live without: my dog Poppy (corgi/chihuahua cross), music (classical, opera and choral are favourites), chocolate, quiet green spaces and mental activity.
