Music: Just about anything from classical through to Frank Sinatra and Amadou & Mariam ... but not R&B, rap or hip hop.
Food: I love all good food and trying new things in particular. If forced to pick a nationality I'd go with Italian or Indonesian, but if forced to pick a single dish I'd go with haggis, neeps and tatties every time! I also cook a mean lettuce soup - trust me, it's better than it sounds!
Something to look forward to
Friends that feel like family
Being able to see the horizon once in a while
Another good book
