We live in Adelaide but often travel. I am a retired chef and author of two published cookbooks. My husband Kevin is a company director and geologist with worldwide interests. We visit family in Perth, Brisbane & London. We holiday on beautiful Lake Atitlan in Guatamala where we have a house in town and an octagonal cabin on the lakeside.
