I am originally from England, and my wife Janet is from Louisiana. When we started Geocaching in 2002, we needed a name, and the Cajunlimeys were created. Janet grew up in Southwest Louisiana which is the heart of Cajun country. Even though Janet has no Cajun blood, her cooking is excellent! “Limeys” comes from the nickname for English sailors, who ate limes to prevent scurvy.

We live in Houston, Texas, with Bailey and Samuel.

We love adventures and want to share the experiences with others. When planning trips, I have found other people’s sites very useful, so I want to give back and add a different perspective.

Adventure has taken various forms through the different seasons in life.  I was blessed with a fine international career in the Oil and Gas industry for thirty years, which enabled us to do so much. While my family has given me so much joy, here is the subset that I hope to describe on this site alongside new experiences:
