We live in Gran Canaria, Spain but originate from Blackpool, UK. We've been out of UK for over 12 years. We love to visit our family who are spread out all over UK and to see the beautiful countryside that we miss. We went to China when my brother married a lovely Chinese lady, we went to Qatar when my son worked there for a while. I love reading, knitting and making greetings cards, all quiet things. My husband is older than myself and appreciates en-suite facilities in case of a visit during the night. We love travelling anywhere, meeting nice people and hearing their experiences, trying different food and discussing different ideas. My life mottos are:- Expect nothing, then you're not disappointed when you get it and If you can't do what you enjoy, then enjoy what you do. Simple.
