We (Tim & Lori) love our life in Cornwall! We never take for granted the fact that we have daily access to such a beautiful area. Having said that we love to travel - anywhere off the beaten track is good - with adventure and surprises (hopefully good ones!), where we can meet local people and experience different cultures. Not surprising then that my (I'm Lori) favourite movie is Into the Wild, favourite book... umm, probably Women Who Run with the Wolves (Clarissa Pinkola Estes), but many others too. Food and music tastes are eclectic, with Indian food near the top of the list, and music-wise, my current favourite listen is First Aid Kit, Half Moon Run and Loreena McKennit, but it changes according to mood. We love wildlife and my favourite trip Ever was a recent trip to Tanzania where we were lucky enough to see Elephants, Lions, Hippos and Hyenas (many more!) in their natural habitat. I can live without most things, but I need to be regularly immersed in the great outdoors to be at my best.
