I am a retired university lecturer/schools inspector. My partner is Christine, also a retired university lecturer. We are interested in the arts, particularly music and opera. Other interests are walking, eating well, and meeting people from cultures other than our own. We enjoy travelling and, at one stage in our careers, worked and lived in South East Asia. We are enthusiastic AIrbnb travellers and our lives have been enriched staying in Airbnb homes across Europe and Australia. We are also cheerful characters who believe in being positive in our approach to life.
