Married to my soul mate with 4 grown up, independent children.
I enjoy time with friends and family, days in the countryside with picnics or bbq, cooking (I have an experimental style), dining out and trying different cuisines from all around the world. I enjoy meeting other travellers and discovering different cultures.
I enjoy walking, cycling, swimming and just soaking up the atmosphere of different places. I really enjoy wandering around old towns and cities, looking at the architecture, finding regional foods, etc.
My style of travel is extremely varied from top class hotels where waiting staff attend to your every need, to hostels and we even stayed (at my insistence and much to our daughter's horror) in a hay barn on a farm, sharing with other travellers. It was great fun and I loved every minute of it. I would not like to only stay in starred resorts, cocooned from local life.
I enjoy taking photographs, although I don't pretend to be any kind of photographer and I enjoy reading.
