I have lived in South Africa, Namibia, Australia and the United Kingdom. I love travelling and was a travel agent for many years. I really enjoy meeting people from all walks of life. I love walking, photography, reading and cooking and I am a big animal lover - I worked on the front desk of a large veterinary practice in Sydney for seven years - quite fascinating! One of my favourite holidays is to spend time in a game reserve - there is something quite magical about the bush. I also love travelling around Europe - preferably by train and one of our best holidays was a cruise around the Mediterranean.
I would like my guests to feel relaxed and at home. I am on hand to offer assistance if needed, but will also give them the space and privacy they need.
