I have worked in many different areas throughout my life, as well as being a part-time musician, but I now teach English as a Foreign Language.
My partner Karen
Our main interests are cycling, cinema, music, travel, hillwalking, reading and cooking. We have travelled as far afield as Cuba to Borneo, with a lot of Europe in between, plus Iceland in the North and Morocco and Croatia. I grew up in the State of Brunei in Borneo, so I can say that my favourite destination is somewhere hot.
When we travel we like to do it independently, using homestays and public transport, India was fantastic for that type of experience. We have also used Air B & B several times for accomodation which have always been brilliant.
We have two children, a daughter who is 27 yrs, and a son who is 22yrs, both have left home.
As a teacher of English I meet people from all over the world, and this year I have had students staying in our home. Having an opportunity to meet so many people, finding out about their culture and the many diverse interests that they all have is probably the best part of the job. Sharing what Scotland, and especially Edinburgh has to offer, is something that Karen and I love to do.
It is incredibly rewarding being able to contribute to someone's visit, and we will do our best to make sure that each person has a comfortable and enjoyable time.
