Me? I'm a self-confirmed Castlemainiac. I love this town and I love my home. Oh and I love food. And lucky for you, I am more than happy to share them all with you. I am happy to cook breakfast and dinner should you require them (at an extra cost) coz I love to cook with local, garden produce. And I love to cook for others. Frankly..... I live in paradise but you can be the judge. As host, I can be low key or interactive, it all depends on your preference. I am interested in environmental issues and food issues. I enjoy travel, a good book, a great movie, the beach, the forest, music and stimulating conversation.
