Lilian used to be a manager in a Childrens Psychiatric Hospital and worked four days a week. As per April 2021 she stopped working completely and she's now enjoying 'retired' life to the max. Lots of tennis !
I have worked with Youth at Risk and Juvenile Delinquents for many, many years. I am retired for six years already and my days are filled with running the household, volunteering for various organisations, walking the dunes and the beach, reading books, working in the garden and supporting our daughters. I used to be a long distance runner, but alas...those were the days.
Lilian and I have been travelling a lot since the very early '70s We 've been backpacking all over the globe: Europe, United States, Canada, East Africa, Asia, Latin America, South-East Asia and the Far East. After our children were born (we have three beautiful daughters, aged (almost) 31, (almost) 28 and just 26) we stayed in Europe, but later on, we traveled as a family to New England, Nova Scotia, Rajasthan and Ladakh, Indonesia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia,Tanzania....House swapping took us to European destinations, but also to the Faeroer, Vancouver Island, Taiwan, South Korea, New York....all wonderful experiences.
