I am a retired university professor and I live with my wife Helen in the cathedral city of Canterbury. We enjoy independent traveling especially to places that are interesting to explore and culturally diverse. We have in the past three years been to Japan where our grandson was born, visited friends in Australia, driven from Los Angeles to New York via New Orleans and Memphis, been sightseeing in Krakow and explored Kerala in India. We are fairly self-reliant though we do enjoy meeting and talking to people different backgrounds. I am grateful that I have the opportunity to find out more about the world I live in.
