A bit about me
What's the best place you've visited and why?
Rome – ‘breath taking’. There are many wonderful places to visit; the Colosseum, the Vatican, Sistine chapel and Trevi fountain to name but a few. After a busy day soaking up the ancient history and outstanding art there is nothing better than enjoying authentic pizza or pasta and sipping red wine in one of the many squares. I cannot wait to return again!
What is your favourite quote?
"Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age and dreams are forever." (Walt Disney)
Do you have any hobbies and what are they?
