I am married with two children 9 and 6 and we live in Volos. We are a bilingual family – my children and I are fluent in English and Greek. Born in England, of Irish parents, I followed my young adult desire to travel and explore and found myself in Greece, aged 27. I have spent most of my adult life in Volos, Magnesia, near the east coast of Greece. I created a fulfilling business in English language teaching and examining that paid my way for many years. I married a local Greek man and we have two daughters, aged 9 and 6. They are thoroughly bilingual and can be both Greek and British/Irish all at once. Along the way I have added skills including working as a breast-feeding supporter, doing and teaching co-counselling, and trading in the Local Exchange Trading system (LETs) in Volos. I’ve always sung and played guitar for pleasure and in my 50th year I decided I wanted to be in a rock band and I achieved that. I love it! I’m involved with various activities with children – the climate here is perfect for organising outdoor parties for children and families in local parks and public places. I’m also a supporter of intentional communities and from time to time we go as a family to share and learn together.
