My philosophy of life is that life is short and is to be lived to the full . I love travel because I love meeting people and experiencing new things. I work as a primary teacher and have a variety of holiday possibilities every year. I love theatre , art , music and cultural events. I love both travelling to cities and to the countryside and am happy to share my space with cats and dogs ! I've been a vegetarian for many years . I'm independent and can usually find my way around easily, following directions ! I travel light and appreciate a clean home and am tidy and respectful of hosts homes and rules.
