I am an artist with a love of all things cultural particularly music, art and food. I travel to soak up new places, or to get more familiar with places I like. I will walk a city to get to know it, get lost as much as possible, bring some books to read and note-books to write and draw. I will trail the art galleries, find where the good food is, organic if possible, or track down the local market and cook at home, then look for good dancing music particularly Jazz, Soul, Funk. I like a balance of good conversation and quiet time. I don't smoke and I keep a clean house! Sometimes I am traveling alone, but mostly I have my lovely man Declan in tow. His love is for good (organic) food, great music and general chats. He's also a non-smoker and keeps a clean kitchen, unless he's cooking!! When traveling in Ireland, Noinin our very gentle and well behaved dog is with us, usually demanding swims in the ocean.
