Having been a fairly hard and conscientious worker all my working life, I now want to spend a bit of time on "me". Also, I've had enough of heat and sweating through long dry Aussie Summers, and now revel in the cooler climate of Northern Europe. I enjoy doing voluntary work, which includes working with children and animals, volunteering on a work party on Lake Baikal, and helping with annual fund raising collections for several well known charities.
My "big" holiday is planned for next year, January/February, when I will travel through parts of Germany and Holland, then a trip into Norway, Sweden and Finland to see the Northern Lights, do some dog sledding and reindeer driving, snow mobiling etc. Then I will be attending the Sochi Winter Olympics, and hope to finish off with a trip to Lake Baikal, and hopefully, a four wheel drive trip on the ice.
