Youngest of five children. I have six nieces, six nephews, eight great nieces, 11 great nephews, one great great niece and one great great nephew. So when we have family events there is no place for boredom. One problem is the families are scattered between the North and South islands and three families in Australia.
I like biking, Nordic walking, walking, reading and I’m starting to paint after many years of no time to let this side of my creativity flow, that mostly comes out in playing guitar and writing songs. I enjoy learning and love to read. The universe fascinates me, I like to go on the NASA website and see the photos of constellations, planets, nebulas and galaxies.
My favourite place to relax is at the ocean, that’s where my soul is refreshed especially walking along the beach with the smell of fresh sea air.
