Sue is a retired solicitor and Norman a retired IT consultant (do IT people ever retire?). Sue used to be a book addict but now listens to talking books. Norman is a scuba diver (30 years experience) and a music freak - hence the audio equipment and +/- 2500 LPs in the snug. Sue had a stroke in 2001 and because of this, we need a walk-in shower and a low bed (some American beds are up to 1 metre high). Single storey homes are a real bonus but not mandatory. We have been to Australia, New Zealand, Egypt, South Africa, Canada and the USA as well as closer countries including France, Italy and Spain. Although Sue is able to walk she has an electric buggy which we will bring with us.
