I am 62, married to Peter, and live on a small farm in North Eastern Victoria, Australia. We are both retired. Peter was formerly a Phys.Ed. teacher and I was a secretary. Peter is the farmer, with Blonde Aquitaine cattle and I am the traveller. I have walked some of the Camino de Santiago in Spain 6 years ago, and we intend walking the Via Francigena in Italy next year. I have been on a safari in Kenya and have had two wonderful months (February of 2010 and 2011) in Italy - love it. My heroine is Freya Starke (a woman traveller and compatriot of the Queen Mother) after reading a book she wrote called The Valley of the Assassins. We have three girls; one a teacher in Victoria, one runs a cafe/takeaway Turkish food shop with her partner and child in Canberra, and one is a doctor and lives with her husband in Tasmania.
