Welcome. Thank you for visiting my blog. In case you’re not sure, I love books. I do lots of other things as well, but I do love books. 🙂

I spent my first twenty years in Bedford, England (just NE of London near Cambridge), and then was awarded a swimming scholarship to a large university in Texas. I have stayed here in the Lone Star State (a nickname for Texas) since then, but I still travel around. I enjoy going away, and then I enjoy coming home. 🙂

I still consider myself English, although there can be no denying that some Texanisms slide in every now and then. (You can’t live in Texas and not say “y’all” after a while.)

I still drink PG Tips, and love watching Americans taste Marmite for the first time.

I am impatiently waiting for Jaffa Cakes to be widely available in the USA.

I enjoy working out, reading as much as I can, travel, writing and photography. Oh, and puns. 🙂

  1. Good evening,
    i like your blog. Your post are very interisting.
    I invite you to visit my intercultural blog: http://parolesemplici.wordpress.com/mytinbox/
    I define this blog “In parole Semplici” as a “virtuacultural tin box” where they are guarded thoughts, memories, images, sounds, and simple stories.

    My dream is to create a intercultural blog with authors from around the world.
    Do you want to collaborate for “In parole Semplici”?
    I’ll wait your reply:
