In His Own Words

About him

If companionship with someone living an active (I'm fit), varied, rural North Yorkshire life, whilst watching our families develop and enjoying what our localities can offer, interspersed with adventures further afield appeals, then we have much to discuss. My wife and I enjoyed this together until 2012 and it's all a bit empty on one's own; I should so much like to enjoy it again.

After many years in the south working in the IT business (mostly IBM), we returned to N Yorks in 2000 to restore the old family house. I have farming and woodland interests which keep me pretty occupied, I am in involved with photography for NADFAS projects, secretary of an alumni group, enjoy not too serious bridge, following various blogs that interest me (environment, climate & photography mainly). Caring for my home and its surroundings takes a fair bit of time.

Over many years I have traveled a fair bit (both business and personal) and still like to. (Only South America is unvisited) Now I particularly enjoy pottering in some of the best of Europe's countryside.
Saying a bit about past trips with my late wife gives a flavour of what I have enjoyed. We often went cross-country skiing in Norway, charter sailing in the Med, stays in French gites, walking mixed with driving trips (and rail on my own) around Europe. Further afield we drove around several of the National Parks between Denver and the west coast. Having met in the sixties in Sydney, we of course returned to see our old stamping grounds and friends - and threw in a sail in NZ. I have mostly preferred independent travel, though in the last three of years I have been on three archaeology and ancient history trips with Andante Travels. And I'm ready to be surprised by new adventures!

About his ideal match

Two is more fun than one. Perhaps a widow with her own family, a sense of fun, adventurous, and keen to make the most of this stage of life.
