Hello. My name is Carole Garcia and I now live in West Sussex in the U.K. I have travelled all over the world. I grew up in West London near a place called Ealing.

I love to communicate with all kinds of people and learn about different cultures. My husband is Russian and we have spent some time in St. Petersburg, it is a beautiful city. We have a lovely dog named Mika who we adopted in Spain. She is a Stafford Bull Terrier and is very sweet and well behaved. We love to go for walks with Mika as we have beautiful walks very close by. We eat very well at home and enjoy good food. We have had our house in Crawley Down for 20 years and love it here. We much prefer the countryside nowadays. I have one son a and a beautiful granddaughter. They live in Brighton which is very popular as it is by the sea and full of many things to do; it is known as London by the sea and is actually a city. We love Brighton as there are so many fabulous shops and restaurants.
