I live near [[Nottingham]] and travel extensively in the UK (both work and leisure). My first love has always been the [[Lake District]]. I'm a hillwalker and love the Lakeland fells as well as the Scottish hills. My passion is for grand glaciated scenery - after these sort of mountains a lot of landscapes seem lacking in wow factor.

As well as enjoying independent travel I like (informal, budget) cruises and think they're a good way to see a lot of places with a minimum of exhaustion. Don't necessarily dismiss cruises - there's a certain appeal to waking up in a new place without having to pack or sit on a plane/bus/train for hours.

I don't know, I go away for a few months and all hell breaks loose!

I'm leaving for another popular travel guide; after five minutes of reading it became apparent that all regular contributors and admins have migrated. The clincher was when I realised an IB admin had deleted an invitation from another user to take a look at what was happening. So that's the trust gone.

Byeee :-)
