I am now retired and am trying to improve my golf by playing as much as I can. In order to while away the winter hours I have started to learn Ceroc - a modern jive. My other interests are swimming, reading, going to the cinema, the local jazz club and anything else that takes my fancy. I enjoy meting people and socialising however I prefer intimate gatherings as opposed to huge parties. I enjoy the buzz of cities but in all honesty I prefer a town relatively close to the countryside to relax to the sound of birds singing and watch the sun go over the horizon. When I travel I love exploring new places and learning about the life and culture and whilst I love walking around in the sunshine, I am not a sun worshipper and find it difficult to lie for hours on a beach. I find hotels rather soulless places and when I came across the airbnb site I thought it would be a wonderful way of staying somewhere with someone who had local knowledge and insight. Were I to stay with you, you would find me polite, considerate of your property and appreciative of your hospitality.
