I also try and do a big cycle at least once a year. So far I have cycled to Paris, done the perimeter of the Isle of Wight and the next planned trip is the war graves in northern France.
"making people see the funny side of things but knowing when a serious moment and some wise words are needed"
being open to new ideas and learning from my experiences
being fair and non judgemental
Currently glued to Mad Men!
I'm very open to all music but try to steer clear of over commercialised and thrash metal! I generally listen to BBC6 (and wake up to Radio 4).
Books that have really made me think, that spring to mind are Brideshead Revisited, The Kite Runner, Wine & War...
I think of myself as a foodie. I love going to new restaurants that introduce me to different cultures and exciting ideas. I dabble in the kitchen but would love to learn more
I have a friend who is a top chef and have learnt much from him!
Friends, family and all the amazing times spent with them
I love to keep up on current affairs and am always willing to debate the important things over a glass of vino.
