In His Own Words

About him

I am retired: I used to run a mid-sized cultural charity on the commercial side, travelling the world to organise history-based exhibitions. It was fantastic fun and hugely satisfying.
Now I play golf, travel, teach a bit, play bridge and write.
Central America was my manor for five winters: México, Guatemala, Belize, Ecuador, Peru and Colombia. [Learning Spanish along the way].
More recently Laos, Cambodia, India.
Inexpensive hotels mostly but I like city break posh hotels too.
In the summer it is more in Europe or at home: two years ago I cycled France north to south.
I have a travel blog which you can read at your leisure: I try to mix up humour, observation and history in an original way; my now impossible dream would be to become a famous writer.
Twice a year I act as cultural guide to Art Society tour groups. Romania, Corsica etc. It would be nice to take you somewhere new to you. As a special guide.
I am a fan of great humour: Steve Martin (LA Story), Gervais (Extras), Episodes, Tracey Ullman, Eddie Izzard, Chris Rock and the ultimate master Cary Grant himself. And Bill Bryson of course for mellow thoughts.
Music of all sorts and not especially recherché: I would take the Stones, Mozart and Puccini with me when Kirsty finally gets around to asking me onto her desert island.
I can cook man-food with a bottle of Gigondas at my side. Probably best we go out instead.
I occasionally give talks to a captive audience of a hundred or so U3A members [ latest were on Belle Epoque, Conquistadores and Russia ].
I've lived for most of the past nine years in a cottage on a farm. The deer and badgers trip the security lights at night. Magpies, woodpeckers and sheep come by during the day.
The photos are all recent

About his ideal match

Attractive, kind and interesting.
Needs to like a bit of culture: the arts, history or just rock and roll.
Sees life as a fantastic opportunity for fun, discovery, getting out and about, observing humanity with a keen eye for folly and ostentation. You are positive about people and try to find something nice to say even when it isn’t easy.
You hate to lie too long on the beach but would happily curl up with a good book and a glass of something cool under the next palm tree.
You wouldn’t mind a brisk walk in the cold to shake the cobwebs off on a winter’s day.
You look after yourself and your home.
