About Me


In 2005 took early retirement in order to enjoy life more. My wife and I travel at every opportunity, and as often as possible.


We both enjoy cruising, the relaxed atmosphere, moving from port to port. Mostly in the Medierranean as close to home and easy to get to Rome or Barcelona. We try for the bigger ships as more stable.
We have 2 children and eight grandchildren.
We both are young at heart and enjoy life, and travel often.When at home train for triathlons,half iron-man competitions and marathons, that is plenty of cycling,swimming and running.


You only live once - make the best of it !!! Live each day as if its your last - one day you'll be right!!!
Do what you want to do NOW!Dont plan years ahead but do it now.
