  • Description

    Jo - I have been fortunate to experience a number of careers throughout my life. Now, I have been given the opportunity to tread a new path and feel that I am beginning to discover my potential. I am not in the first flush of youth, but I have great passion, empathy and determination. I want to discover new places and learn new skills. I believe I have a great strength of character, born mostly out of experience, a good of humour and sense of adventure. I am excited and looking forward to challenging myself further using this platform.
    Dave - After many years of hard work in the water purification industry, and after a personal loss, I have relocated to Portugal with Jo to begin a new life. I have always had a burning desire to travel and explore as much of the world as possible. I now have that opportunity as Jo is like-minded.
    I am determined, enthusiastic, positive, laid back and whilst not an expert in any one thing, I can turn my hand to most tasks. I am a keen paraglider and sports lover, having played cricket, football and golf.
    I have begun to discover my 'yin' side and now enjoy yoga and pilates and practise several times a week.
