About Me

Since Sep 2005

Lives in London, United Kingdom

50-64 year old male

I lived in inner city north London for decades but now I live in Richmond, Surrey,. I taught history and development studies to adults at a further education college in the inner city until I retired in 2007. I love travelling ever since I did the overland 'hippy trail' to India in the 1970s. My greatest passion is India which I have visited 13 times over the years. But I also have travelled extensively in S E Asia, Japan and China in Asia. I regularly visit Morocco, a range of European countries and the USA. Last year I spent over 3 months in Australia and loved almost every minute I am also a keen walker and have done several walking holidays in Europe and Asia. . I hate package holidays, racism, Islamophobia, neoliberalism, war. I love just about everywhere with a few significant exceptions.
