I enjoy photography, horse riding, walking (though I'm not a hiker!) and all the planning and research involved in travelling. The USA is my favourite long haul destination, for all its varied and amazing scenery, the national parks, the wildlife and also enjoying its beautiful beaches and sunshine locations. I visit with friends north of Seattle - a very welcoming and lovely compact city - the pacific northwest area has some fabulous scenery; have enjoyed several whale trips from this region. In the last few years I've had a week on various on horse ranches - riding in the desert and in the beautiful Montana mountains and have done several cattle drives - great fun!
Visited several national parks - my favourite to-date is Glacier National Park - the scenery there is just unbelievable.
At some point in the future I will visit Austrialia/N.Zealand, but I need to wait until I can go for there for at least 2 months in order to do it justice!
