A practising physiotherapist for 35 years, I am now giving myself the time to follow up other interests. Growing and cooking our own vegetables, screen printing on natural fabrics, Qi Gong and Yoga.
I love travelling and walking, and the Himalayas have a particular interest for me. I have had several trekking trips to Nepal and last year spent three months teaching English in North India to Tibetan monks and nuns.
I live with my husband who is a family Doctor and meditation teacher.
Our three grown up children are presently living in Christchurch, Australia and Germany.
I'm learning Italian - slowly! And recently had an immersion Italian experience in Perugia. My husband David speaks some French.
I enjoy meeting people from other parts of the world, and helping them to enjoy their stay in our beautiful country.
