A 30-something who loves the great outdoors, hill walking, cycling and keeping fit (which is difficult to fit in when my job has me driving the thick end of 1000 miles a week!)
I love food - eating it, cooking it, talking about it, photographing it and admiring it in books and on menus. I try to follow a paleo / primal lifestyle, but every now and then a scone with clotted cream falls into my mouth!
I enjoy good wines and the odd whiskey (preferably a Connamara single malt) and I will travel a long way for a decent dirty martini!
I love travel and I unashamedly collect stamps in my passport.
I love history, architecture, railways, art, cats and shoes.
And when I am not doing/planning all of the above, I like to lie in darkened rooms and think about doing/planning all of the above.
My Favorite Places:
For a city break, Rome. For island life, history and culture, Easter Island. For hiking in amazing landscapes, Hohe Tauern national park in Austria and Etosha national park in Namibia. For countryside, cosmopolitan cities, fantastic architecture and afternoon teas, the UK.
