About Patricia Ainslie
Hi, I'm originally from UK & relocated to Kerala 16yrs ago & loving it. Although I came for the 'quiet life' after working as a local government Social Worker for many years,it did not quite work out that way, I now have an Indian tourism & event management company & more recently started writing for the film industry (screen plays & song lyrics). Life out here is busy but I still enjoy meeting new people, welcoming them to my home & sharing the wonders that beautiful Kerala has to offer.
Patricia Ainslie purchased this apartment in 2007
Why Patricia Ainslie chose Thiruvananthapuram
