We were anonymous restaurant inspectors for a highly-respected UK food guide for a number of years, covering places as far afield as Yorkshire, Lancashire, Hampshire and Northamptonshire.
I teach English to adult foreigners part-time, and usually travel with my wife. Now that our daughter has finished her teenage years she generally chooses not to accompany us abroad. We are permanently hard up so we are always looking for the best possible value for money, whether it be at home or abroad.
My wife prefers beach holidays and sun-bathing, whereas I don't like it too hot and like to be doing things, such as excursions and exploring. This means that our holidays always involve some compromises for both of us. We always try to find out about the local food and the local culture; we don't want to go abroad and for everything to be British.
