In His Own Words

About him

‘Interesting times’ as the Chinese saying goes, so where to start now? Well I continue to try and help in community, charity, social and educational projects at home – and abroad. BC (2019) these included conserving corals off Borneo, dolphins off Zanzibar and coastal Thailand. There’s also recent teaching in Laos, Cambodia, and Nepal, with brilliant noisy kids - or quieter monks (see pic)! Across the world you meet great people, learn from everyone, have amazing experiences, make new friends and 'good craic' abounds.

But some back pages? Well after a great time at Oxford in the legendary sixties, I 'followed my star' and found my way to a fascinating international career, across 6 continents ... and a great 30 yrs in London.

But also drawn to natures' wider skies, success allowed me a new life at 51 to restore a lovely 18th c farmhouse in its sunny valley in stunning W Wales - a mini nature reserve with 'din of birdsong and whirling colours'. With a new BSc in Ecology, I protect the ancient woodlands, care for the lands in my valley and my gardens full of flowers, wildlife and ‘wellbeing’.

Woven through all this is my love of the 'human story' and our planet home, with adventures now to over 100 countries. You’ll find me exploring world cultures, faiths and peoples; museums, temples and historic sites - and Earth's mysteries .. I enjoy all the arts - theatre, painting, poetry, architecture etc; and love music - classical, opera and dance, and from rock to world music – learning classical guitar.

I focus on health and fitness; with regular 5k runs, Pilates, Yoga and hiking, eg Camino & see pics from Suilven, Wadi Rum, Iceland, Vic Falls / Botswana & diving Maldives, all in '23- profile pic Great Wall in '24 … and I come from a very youthful long-lived family with a Dad who also travelled the world ... at 95! Told I look and act far too young and must grow up!

About his ideal match

First it seems it’s that mysterious mutual chemistry and attraction that’s so critical The initial first blink, flash of light, or click, I am told! But how elusive is that, anywhere in the UK, let alone nearby? And next that heady mix of difference, similarity, and special connection? … and the flexibility to make a new weave of different lives?

My profile's just my journeys and explorations - I would be fascinated with your stories. And with you we could figure it differently as I love to learn; you may open other worlds I haven't felt or experienced; new plans and journeys; talents and passions; stories and wisdoms.

And to help a bit further - any of these you might relate to? - Looking for new adventures across the world? A country Shangri-La to complement your current life? Love all the arts and music? City savvy, but mainly a country person? Love of nature and our planet home? Kind, friendly and happy? Flexible world traveller, 'off piste' drawn to new places and peoples of the world? Independent, free spirited warm and romantic? Active, slim, fit and healthy? Interest in local community? Spiritual life that's open to new ideas? Humour and fun the best medicine? All a great start for fascinating conversations ... and more??
