About us

We - John and Carol - will both be retired by mid 2011. John was a business manager in the plastics industry , Carol is a psychologist. We are looking to travel to Europe during the second half of 2011 to spend some time with our son and partner who are currently living in London. We are interested in walking in the UK (Yorkshire Dales and Cotswolds) and cycling if it is reasonably flat! We are also interested in galleries, gardens and historical sites.
