Retired full time student of history who loves travelling, music (especially modern classical), reading, study, languages, gardening and exercise. I am an Aikido teacher and gym addict, who would rather walk or ride than drive. I don't own a car or television, don't eat junk food (vegan when not travelling) and believe that the simple things in life are the best. Looking for friendship, and companionship with no pressure for anything else. I am hoping to meet a mature, intelligent, warm and independent woman with a sense of humour and a love of adventure.
