With my partner, travelling to see my grandchildren and continuing visiting new places

Who are the most important people in your life and how do you spend time with them?

My daughters, my grandchildren, my family (siblings, nephews, cousins) and my friends

What is your sex and love life like in the future?

My grandchildren
