Hi, I'm British and from the Isle of Man. Way back as a young man, I spent 8 years touring full time with a band. Family life followed, work in the blossoming computer industry and laterly jumping sideways to teach Music and English in Switzerland for the last 20 years. Sadly I lost my dear wife last year and now I'm retired, I miss that life on the road. My wife and I bought a small RV a few years ago and travelled most of Europe despite her illness and right up until her last few days! Now, I'm carrying on the travels alone but with her in spirit. My home is small but the garden's big!

Skills & Expertise to Share

Back in the UK now but details of the great time I had in Canada and Alaska here -

Musician - Can busk and fit in with almost any other group of musicians or singers.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Countryside, by the sea, river or lake. Towns OK now and then. Something new is always interesting.

manxli's Hometown

Isle of Man, British Isles. It's a little island between Northern England and Ireland in the Irish sea. It has its own government and money. Due to the gulf stream, the climate is mild in Winter and even palm trees grow on the island.
