I am happily retired after working for over 40 years as an educator/teacher in schools and universities. My wife and I have done lots of travelling and our favourite places so far are Canada and France, although there are so many countries we've not yet visited and we've seen fascinating and beautiful places in all countries where we have been. While travelling, we enjoy visiting museums and galleries, as well as markets, interesting buildings and scenic spots. We love walking around towns and small villages and talking with local people who can help us learn about and enjoy some of the local culture. At home, our pleasures include reading, movies, playing bridge, walking our dog and cooking for ourselves and our friends.
