  • Description

    I enjoy new experiences and meeting people from other cultures and I am looking forward to visiting Italy for a month next March, 2019. This year I hiked and backpacked the entire 2190 miles of the Appalachian Trail and am a very frugal and flexible person. I enjoy working with my hands whether cooking, gardening, painting or uncomplicated carpentry--I consider everything worthy when done with care. I also am very comfortable working with animals of all types. I love to read, esp. great biographies and inspirational (self-help), as well as, religious writings. I do not need to be "entertained" and am very comfortable with silence. I consider life full of joy and appreciate living simply. I do enjoy cooking and am primarily vegetarian, but have learned a few vegan dishes which I would love to share.
