Hello. I'm a retired executive from the high tech. industry, now living in Somerset on the edge of what's either a large village or a very small town. Now a widower, I have lived here for the last 6 years having moved from the Reading area, although I've worked in various places in the past, including the USA and Germany. I now do voluntary work for the NHS as a lay person in the field of medical research.
I have 3 children of my own, 2 stepchildren, and what seems like a small army of very energetic grandchildren who are a delight. I'm lucky enough to have a spacious house and garden with friends and family living not too far away.
I've travelled a lot, and travelling for leisure is miles better than travelling on business. There has been a long list of destinations so far and I'm hoping for more to come. Over the last few years I've learned - or maybe re-learned - a couple of really important things: Kindness to others matters, and we should make the most of the time we have while we can. And so, for the latter thing it would be lovely to find someone who wants to do the same, and likes me enough to want do it together.
What do you like most about where you currently live?
Beautiful surroundings and good neighbours.
What do you enjoy most about your current job?
The best thing about my current job is that I don't have one - retiired and enjoying it.
Where in the world are your favourite places?
Somewhere warm and sunny is a good start. Memorable countries have been Australia, NZ, Costa Rica, and India to name just a few.
Where in the world would you love to visit?
South America, perhaps.
