I'm Irish by birth, spent my adult life in Africa and at present live in and love Portugal.
I'm retired hoping to spend the next years doing things interesting and useful.
I run and walk regularly, cycle long distances occasionally, couldn't be without books and music. I'm a country person at heart, but enjoy cities over short periods for their history and culture…and restaurants and book shops. I take photographs…happy for hours watching waves or a sunset with my dog. I'm curious and optimistic, my views are liberal and I'm independent to a fault.
