My main interests are in sports and travel. In my younger years I competed competitively in soccer at first division amateur level. I was also active in tennis and squash but now confine myself to social play. I am an avid golfer and as a spectator I enjoy all sports.

I travel extensively throughout the world, both academically and socially. I have an interest in both ancient and modern history and have toured the classical sites of Egypt, Greece and Rome.

I enjoy all types of cuisine and have been a member of a gourmet Club for some years.
