I was born in the UK and lived there until the age of 24 when work brought me to Belgium where I met Ria.

Have lived and worked in South East Belgium ever since, until my retirement in 2020.

I have worked in some very different professions during my career and have enjoyed a lot of travel, both privately and for work.

An avid cyclist and former sports fanatic, I keep myself fit and live a fairly healthy life.



Ria was born in Essen (Flanders not Germany) and lived and worked there until the age of 22 when she moved to Saint Vith in South East Belgium where she met me.

She has also lived and worked here since then and is still working.  She has also had several interesting jobs in her career and enjoys travel as much as I do.

Also a keen cyclist and hiker, she is mainly responsible for my healthy lifestyle.
