Marcel and Aleta are British and US Citizens who have lived in the USA for 15 years. We come from Northamptonshire in the UK, have lived in Singapore for 6 years, and in New Hampshire and Florida in the USA.
We are world travelers and enjoy meeting new people, experiencing new things and are always ready for another new adventure. We are qualified sailors and have bareboat chartered sailing boats in Greece, The British Virgin Islands and Florida over the past few years. We love to cook, and of course to eat. We are avid cyclists, love to walk and hike, and enjoy designing and working on our many homes that we have had throughout our world travels.
Marcel has recently semi-retired from the Executive position he has held for over 20 years and we are looking to spend periods of time in different parts of the world.
Throughout his career Marcel has traveled to a large part of the world, almost every continent and it is now time to visit them again, this time at a slower pace with Aleta.
