About Me


live and let live,start each day with a laugh before breakfast.


Christa and David met travelling in the 80s and still love to put on a backpack and head off into the world. Brought up two children who are also avid travellers. We love SE Asia and India,though when we are not travelling we are very comfortable on our small farm living the lifestyle by the sea, fishing, diving and chillaxing.
We are both avid readers and devour books of all sorts


live and let live. very tolerant to other views. know there is NOT one way to see or do anything. open to all lifestyles except takers and vampires [people that suck your life force] Love passionate people even if I don;t agree with them. like laughter and smiles and the indian way of life. less is more.
