I am a writer and literary events organiser. We are both Australian, but I lived in Asia for many years. My husband, Ian, has retired from Asia-Pacific's IT industry and is now a keen golfer, though he doesn't play when we travel. We live well, but within a budget and without ostentation. We don't smoke, are generous hosts and considerate guests. We love good cuisine. Ian is the chef in our household and he likes to do a cooking class if possible when we travel. We love new adventures and exploring places, which includes learning about the art and culture of places we visit.
