About Me

ABOUT ME

MY NEXT TRIPS IN 2015 April and May Europe. April 13 Barcelona, then Valencia, Madrid, Andalucia, Portugal, Santiago, London, etc.

I get along well with people of all ages and I like children and animals too. Age has no limitations for sharing our own home and culture.

I love eating fresh fruits and vegetables and the local cuisines of the places I visit. I like to learn all about my guests/hosts culture, their lives, dreams, travels, etc.and sharing from my own.

I enjoy street performers, art galleries, opera, theater, museums, libraries, bookstores, concerts, and having a cup of herbal tea.

We are two people here, my husband and myself. We have a cat.

PHILOSOPHY

Act kind, respect the rights of others, forget and forgive and let go of the past, let go, live in the present.
