I am involved in the wine industry here in the Okanagan Valley in several ways: I teach wine studies at the local college, work for a local winery in the tasting room and handling their social media, work at the local wine information centre and I am also a wine blogger. I love good food, great wine, fabulous design and world travel (sadly don't have enough of the latter at the moment). I have lived in the UK for several years and did a fair amount of European travel. I'm not into roughing it anymore but am also not necessarily looking for 5* places. I enjoy staying somewhere that is very clean and that has character (be it modern or old in style).
