I enjoy travel and putting myself into new circumstances. My wife and I spent two years travelling mostly in Asia in our twenties and again for one year in 2000. That experience set the stage for a lifetime of desire to see new places and understand new cultures. We have three children, all grown and we have both retired, providing us with the time and desire to explore on our own again. That includes a desire to explore new places and cultures in depth, rather than simply passing through.
I love cycle touring, and have cycled across Canada unsupported. I have taught English in Thailand, worked as a movie extra in the Phillipines, and cleaned rooms in a Japanese hostel.
I love music and have played guitar most of my life.
My working life was spent in social work, teaching for community college and conducting tours for Road Scholar.
I am very even tempered, at ease in managing projects and helping people work together.
I have been passionate about travel and have visited over 40 countries. I love to get to know each country by experiences. After my career in social work, I began to do travel writing. Now that my husband and I are retired we want to travel in a way that gives us more depth of understanding about where we are travelling. We love to try new experiences. I am interested in food history/travel and have a blog about that subject www.diningoutwithhistory.com I am currently writing a book about that topic. I am interested in photography and trying many new experiences and meeting new people.
