Fiona P.

Cardiff, CARDIFF, United Kingdom

I have had a wonderfully diverse career, from fruit farming, to healthcare and education.

All of the elements have enhanced my guiding knowledge.
I originally trained as a nurse in London, then gained a BA Hons in History at Exeter University before raising a family and running a fruit farm for 20 years. Then I became a Chair of NHS Health Boards in South Wales. I was appointed to the Council of Cardiff University because of my NHS interests and the largest employer in Wales.
My love of the history and geography of Wales has increased with age and I am so thrilled now to have time to share this passion with visitors. I am learning the whole time - I will never know everything but happy to share all the delightful stories and facts that I do have with you my guests.
Please let me know in advance if you have particular interests as I love researching new areas and histories.
My own relaxations are cycling (not steep hills) Scottish country dancing, gardening, opera, plays, and terribly sentimental TV series !
My children are currently scattered over the world so I travel a lot to see them.
I love life and feel blessed that I have had so many good opportunities and truly hope that I can share my gains with others

A Recent Review of this guide

Fiona, our guide in Wales, filled our day wonderfully taking us outside of Cardiff. Her narratives of the sites illustrated her wealth of knowledge. Toured Caerphilly Castle, Castell Coch, a former coal mining district, and Brecon Beacons. Fiona had impressive answers to all our questions. She took us to a former primary school site that was destroyed by a coal slag giving way, and the children are memorialized. Very moving. Highly recommend Fiona when traveling the beautiful country of Wales!
