Where is your favourite place in the world?
My favourite place in the world is my hometown, Madrid, and above all, I miss it these days when all my family and friends are there fighting against the corona virus. I consider myself lucky to be in Ireland these days and I feel lucky for the love and support that my Irish friends and colleagues are giving me. Thanks Ireland
Favourite Irish holiday destination ?
Last summer my niece came to visit me and together with her I was touring much of this beautiful Ireland. We made several short trips around the Island, we travelled from the coast of the North of Ireland to finish to the south east, and how much the Wicklow area marvelled us.
In another stage we travelled from Waterford to Wexford, including the Black Abbey and its large gardens, which is wonderful.
We went down to Cork, of course passing through Cobh, which is a town that I am passionate about, with its colourful houses, its small island-jail, with its history and we visited the Heritage and Titanic museums, a great lesson in Irish history we learned in those days.
Another stage we toured the entire ring of Kerry to Dingle, how wonderful, there we stayed in several B & Bs, with wonderful people, proud to be Irish, who welcomed us wonderfully and told us fantastic stories.
I wouldn’t know how to specify a favourite place, because all the places visited have had their special charm.
I love living in Waterford and visiting multiple and wonderful places around it, Kilkenny, the Hook lighthouse, the beaches of the Copper Coast, its castles, a wonder.
This summer we would like to tour west and northwest, which I have been told is beautiful.
What are you currently watching on Netflix or binge watching?
I just finished Grace and Frankie where I love how Jane Fonda works. I am waiting, although I have already seen, that the new season of the Peaky Blinders is released, I am passionate about this series. I just saw Hidden Figures, a really good movie about an African American woman and math who calculated various space flight paths
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
I love to go for a walk, walk at seashore and I usually go to Bunmahon and its surroundings. I usually go swimming at the Tower Hotel, and it relaxes me a lot, I also try to take a sauna and Jacuzzi to complete my relaxation. I love teaching, and especially Spanish, so I do some exchange classes of English Spanish with Irish friends. Another of my passions is cooking, simple things, but what I like most is sharing my stews.
