"Welcome to Joe Cooper's Home Page!!" joecooper's Profile
Let me introduce myself - I'm English and live in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. Right now I'm settled, living with my fiancee Christine and working as a Financial Adviser. I graduated from the University of Wolverhampton with a BA (Hons) Business Studies in 2002.
After that I went to China for 10 weeks to teach English and travel. I also lived for one year in the Netherlands whilst doing work experience as part of my course. I have big ambitions with regards to travelling. I have already seen quite a bit of Europe and Asia. My dream trips are to travel extensively around South America and the Far East, possibly living in those areas for a year or more.
Unfortunately work means a good two-week break each year is about all I can muster at the moment. Still, I make the most of this time. I'm also of the opinion that if people will travel half way around the world to see the area I live in, I should make sure I take advantage of it myself too! This first picture was taken about 20 minutes drive from my house. The other photos here are in no discernable order but I just felt like putting them up.
Notes about my pages
Travelogues: Please look out for my travelogues on all my pages as they are an important extension of the information I provide on the main pages.
Photos and images: Where possible I have used my own photos but in some cases I have used pictures off the net. I've only just got my own scanner - one that scans 35mm negatives automatically, to save time! So, i've started to put my own photos up and this has spurred me on to tell people about what they show - I have a lot to catch up on! I have literally thousands of photos which I'd like to get scanned and on the web.

1. China 2002
2. Italy 2001
