Jeff was bitten by the travel bug at an early age, but has always been glad to have a base in Cumbria to return to.
“I’ve been around the world to the Far East, South East Asia, Central and South America,” he said. “Joanne and I went to Thailand for Christmas last year, Sri Lanka for New Year and then spent a month in South India.
“We met a couple in Sri Lanka and later met up with them at Strawberry Bank, so it was great to show them The Lake District.
“I’ve been off and done other things, but I’ve always come back to Cumbria.”
