Computer trainer in Laos PDR

Interests and hobbies

When Heather is not working she loves to go cycling with her cycling buddies.  Now that she has two new knees, she is enjoying walking again and looks forward to having new adventures in the wilderness.  She also loves spending time in her gardens; ensuring there are plenty of colourful plants growing; and the vegetable garden is producing lots of healthy vegetables organically grown and spray free!  She has a saying “if it’s going to be, it’s up to me!“.
