About Me


Michael - to find my ideal home, Michele - to see the UK


Love travelling together. Degree educated to Master's level, both graduated 09/2011 with MSc in Biodiversity and Conservation from the university of Leeds. Natural history and wildlife enthusiasts. Like meeting new people. Love Scotland and travelling in the UK, both keen cyclists and outdoor minded individuals. Friendly individuals and respectful of other people's property. Michele is a vegetarian, Michael is less fussy, but accepts a vegetarian lifestyle when cooking for Michele :-)


Michele's ethos is so much to see, so little time! Mine is so much to see, plenty of time!
