  • Description

    UPDATE

    I am fit and healthy and young at heart...and am told look a lot younger than my age.
    My hobbies include, hiking, yoga and swimming and I love to travel.
    I have been working since I was 17yrs old, but after a volunteering trip to Thailand & Cambodia last year, I realised that I wanted to see more of the world and have more awesome experiences!
    Divorced with no children, I am free to spend some time exploring what the world has to offer.
    Easy going, sensible, hard working, like a laugh, like to learn new skills.
    I do drive, but have never driven abroad.
    I have had a variety of jobs over the years mainly in hotel & catering and sales.
    My trip to Thailand & Cambodia involved working on a toilet building project(brick laying, plastering, digging etc) and assisting in the elephant village (bamboo cutting, muck moving, yard clearing etc)...all of which I thoroughly enjoyed. I recently did some voluntary work at the local nature reserve, which involved trimming branches, cutting down small trees and bushes and looking for lost sheep!
    I love to help people and happy to have a go at just about anything.
    I am a non smoker and eat healthily (most of the time!)
