My wife & I currently live in Australia. We have four grandchildren (two boys & two girls).
I have always been interested in travel, writing, reading and anything that simulates the mind. My only disinterest is sport, even though I traveled all over the UK playing rugby.
I once told a teacher that ‘I’ll never go abroad’, since that stupid comment I have managed to visit nearly seventy countries, all continents, except Antarctica (too cold for me), flown with fifty different airlines, some no longer in business.
All our trips for the past several years have been arranged without using travel agents, because our DIY attitude has saved us money, and we are able to build holidays exactly to our requirements.
As for being a ‘writer’, I had a novel published in the UK a couple of years ago – it is an historical fiction story. I am now working on the sequel.
