I am a friendly, outgoing lady married to co-host, Roger. I enjoy singing, being an active member of two choirs - but don't worry, I promise not to sing in the shower during your stay! Roger and I enjoy travelling and meeting travellers and sharing stories of adventures past and future plans. Roger is a great photographer - wildlife in particular - and we have a gallery of photos in our hallway which we keep updated from our latest encounters. Roger also loves his red wine, and will often offer a glass to our guests to share some bonhomie. I particularly love chocolate, but am trying to resist having just started on a diet!
Our motto as we get older is - DON"T DELAY, DO IT TODAY!
