I am an avid independent traveller, renting holiday accommodation (usually direct from the owner) around six times per year. I'm a big Europhile, and spent fourteen months between 2006-07 travelling around the continent in a motorhome. Favourite destinations include Sicily, the Netherlands and Albania, but I've yet to visit a country I haven't fallen in love with. I'm basically just crazy about being on the move and exploring new places as well as revisiting old favourites. I love London but if I could live anywhere it would be Berlin or Rome. As well as travelling my interests include cooking, reading, going to the theatre, art, politics, hiking and music.
