I am semi-retired about to embark upon a tour of the USA and South America.
For many years I have been very interested in the Civil War.
My other interests include cycling, reading, cooking, rugby union, movies and soulful music.
I have build a successful career in education having been a school principal for over thirty years, a consultant to the education reform in Qatar for two years and, more recently a consultant and trainer for schools in Australia.
My wife and I have traveled extensively with and without our bicycles! In May-July of this year I completed my third European cycling tour through the Pyrenees, Corsica, Sardinia and Provence.
I am often described as a 'people person' and have little difficulty in communicating.
We have three children and four grandchildren.
My sister-in-law visited the US earlier this year. She thoroughly enjoyed her AirBnB experience. We have decided to follow her enthusiastic advice.
I believe our host would find us to be easy-going, polite, interested in others and careful of their property.
I do not have a personal motto but I strive to live my daily life with gratitude.
We look forward to extending our network of friends in the US.
