I have always loved travelling and living in different cultures. Fortunately my work took me all over the world but, along with family responsibilities, came the desire to come back home to Edinburgh.
Edinburgh is a great city to live in and I particularly enjoy playing tennis, walking, the cinema and generally the delights that Edinburgh has on offer.
For a number of years we've been hosting adult learners of English as a Foreign Language who come to study in Edinburgh. I enjoy meeting new people as does my son who, in true student fashion, passes through with his friends from time-to-time - and are very helpful when it comes to recommending the best pubs and clubs to visit!
