Michael lives in London most of the year and has for many years had a penchant for travelling around the world. He has been to many countries including Spain, France, Barbados, The Bahamas and the Dominican Republic to name a few. His favourite destination is the Dominican Republic not just for the climate, but also for the lovely people and their way of life. Michael loves playing table tennis, poker and watching his team Arsenal, although lately that hasn't been so much of a pleasure as an endurance.
