My husband and I are the parents of 6 adult children and 6 young grandchildren. After all that work we are just beginning to travel more often. We love to be spontaneous and find new adventures. We love oceans and rivers, mountains and museums, reading and conversation. We love to explore. Some non-travel things we love are plants and gardens, flowers, cooking, books, art, music, people, our Mini Cooper, barbecuing on the deck, IPA, educated conversation, new initiatives and more. We list a beautiful studio apartment on Airbnb. We travel light and love having no particular agenda, waiting for that day's adventure to come to us.
