After 18 very enjoyable years as a teacher, I'm now exploring life beyond. Work has taken me to East Africa, UK and China and the theme of travel and thoughtful adventure have been a constant for me. There's nothing like that assault on the senses as you step off the plane. I love finding myself somewhere different where there's lots to learn and share, and you can really get to know people. When I'm not travelling, I'm growing vegetables in my garden, cooking, running with my dogs, spending time with my family and spreading the travel love as best I can.
