  • What else ...

    Retired couple looking to help out and travel and see more of the world. We both love to be outdoors even if it just working in the yard. We both are very active and still act like we're 30. Between the two of us, we have been to the following countries: Ecuador, Costa Rica, Italy, Japan, India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Chile, Argentina, Puerto Rico (yes, I know that it part of the USA, but still felt like another country), Mexico, Canada, Germany, United Arab Emirates, Kenya, Australia, Spain, and Malaysia. Unfortunately, most of these visits have been short trips. Now that we have the time we are able to stay long enough in each place to really really experience the area.
