In His Own Words

About him

I am an active person who enjoys life and exploring new ideas and places. In my retirement I take small groups of friends to some of the most beautiful parts of Europe (and beyond). I enjoy visits to the theatre, cinema, concerts and (light) opera but I am not really a city-lover and enjoy most country pursuits, including walking, cycling, motor-biking, golf and flying light aircraft.
France, Greece, Italy and Spain (in that order) are my favourite countries outside the UK. So far this year I have taken groups to Kenya, Vietnam, Cambodia and Croatia. Tours later this year will include the Italian lakes, Greece, St Petersburg. Berlin, Southern Turkey, Israel and South Africa. This still leaves time to enjoy country life in North Oxfordshire and a Summer in the south of France (near Toulouse). I like my life to be busy but organised! Maybe a little more relaxation would not be a bad thing!
I trained as a barrister, then taught for some years in Africa and in a major public school in UK before starting my own travel business in my mid-thirties. I have 3 children in their 20s who are all well settled (but on 3 separate continents!)

About his ideal match

I am looking for a lively, interesting, cultured lady with a sunny, positive personality, good old-fashioned family values,with plenty of energy and humour, who enjoys life to the full and is prepared to take on new challenges and ideas. Her glass should definitely be half-FULL.Above all she should be FUN to be with!
