I originally come from near Leicester, in the Midlands, but moved to Bedfordshire 10 years ago. I now live with my husband, Mick, in a village not too far from Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire. It is about 20 minutes from Milton Keynes.
My mother's family come from North Wales and most holidays when I was young were spent here. My first trip abroad was when I was 17 in 1992 to Corfu but it is only really since 2003 that i have managed to get away several times a year for both city breaks and full length holidays.
In 1995-1996 I lived in France, near Lille, as part of my degree. Living that far North i was also able to go for day trips to Belgium, which was great.
Beginning of March - spent 3 days in Riga, Latvia, although unfortunately, this trip was for work so only managed to see the Old Town at night.
March - 3 nights in Lisbon, where unfortunately I got very ill with possibly food poisoning and so one of my days was spent in bed and therefore I didn't get to see Sintra, however, I did make enough of a recovery to see a lot of Lisbon itself, including Belem.
May - 4 days in Rome
July - 3 days in York, UK
October - a week in Rhodes, Greece
2008 - Our son Thomas was born on 16th May so no more travel for us for a while! - maybe the odd holiday now and again, but for now, just happy to concentrate on home life.
Below is a bit of information about me:
I love music, particulary rock music - there are too many bands to mention but included in my list of favourites are:
Red Hot Chili Peppers
I love reading many different types of authors, but have most recently got into reading true stories and crime, at the moment my favourites are
We now have a lovely black cat called Stevie, who we were looking after for a couple of months and has now became ours!
My Hong Kong page has now been completed!
Please feel free to take a look and let me know what you think!
Just finished updating: my Newcastle page after our visit in August and also my Buckinghamshire page has recently been updated.
Sorry but I will not be replying to any emails requesting to be personal friends and getting to know each other better etc, I am here to discuss travel only and so would also prefer not to be added as a friend unless you have already had contact with me about travels.
Long weekend in York - July 2007
The island of Symi, off Rhodes, Oct 2007
