I love bush walking, travelling to Europe, and spending time with family and friends. My three 20 something nieces drop by more often than I expected once their lives became so busy. They remind me to take time out to rest and relax. My vegetable garden produces sweet tomatoes, luscious corn and organic Lebanese cucumbers in season and make it impossible for me to buy the copies at supermarkets. When I travel, I love hosts who create a welcoming space and then leave me to enjoy the peace and quiet. I tend to stay in one location for a week or two so I discover a town or place as the locals know it. On my last travels I was delighted with the main city of Hungary, Budapest, as well as Debrecen in the rural area where few tourists venture.
