I'm married and live in a rural part of Scotland, 26 miles south west of Edinburgh. We enjoy travelling and have been fortunate enough to have visited various parts of the World but are also keen to continue exploring our home country. When away from home we prefer to stay in above average accommodation however we're not too proud to go on a budget too!
Food, wine, good scenery, history, different experiences/activities and some walking will usually feature in our travels each year. We've also enjoyed skiing in many places. We particularly like Canada and New Zealand and have been to both countries on visits a few times - we've usually found the people friendly and the scenery often spectacular. It helps that there are also few language barriers!
