Just spent time cycling in Central America and am about to go skiing. I enjoy holidays with activity (for example kayaking, yoga, walking, diving) but often also great food, beautiful areas and an ancient or historical element (I studied Classics as a degree). Sitting around a fire chatting can be rather lovely too. I do enjoy wandering and observing, finding the popular local bar or restaurant, trying to get under the skin of a place in the short time available, learning some words of the local language, understanding the politics, history and customs. But am also not averse to lying by the pool to finish that novel I have been trying to read for a while!
Exploring spirituality and mindfulness.
Time with family and my godchildren. My siblings all have active youngsters.
Enjoy theatre, gigs, museums, Oxford University courses, interesting lectures (Oxford is such a great place to live for that). I'm very interested in the environment and sustainability at the moment, and working out how I can incorporate more understanding of it in my work.
I appreciate honesty, integrity and straightforwardness in others and my motto in life, with acknowledgement to Charles Kingsley, is "do as you would be done by".
The use of myriad words in the english language
laughter and finding the humour in life
supportive and lovely friends and family
physical and mental activity (I guess that counts as two!)
