Bio: My grand daughter, Nadira, looked at the photos on my computer and said "I want to be an explorer like you when I grow up". I qualified as an Advanced Ocean scuba diver and when Nadira qualified we went diving together in the Dominican Republic. In my seventies a diving trip to Costa Rica gave me the chance to zip line across the Rain Forest ending up with a 'Tarzan rope swing' over the Rain Forest canopy. Quite exhilarating! I've travelled and stayed with local people, sharing their everyday lives in villages and towns in Latin America, Australia, India and Canada. I'm always willing to abandon creature comforts and be adventurous - hoping for a 5 star shower on the horizon. Blogs are a way to keep in touch with grandchildren, family and friends who are interested in where I am and what I'm up to! When I'm not traveling, I live in a cottage by the sea in Scotland, another good place to Follow Grandma.
