Beyond the Office.

Travelling, reading, sleeping, walking the dogs and entertaining our neighbours in France by regular language errors. In my more energetic moments, I have also been known to sail, dive, ski and to attempt to hike up mountains. I am also prepared to walk many miles in search of good wine & food.
