About Me

Since Jun 2010

Lives in Vancouver

50-64 year old female

I mostly travel solo and love getting "off the beaten path" whenever I can... the people I meet leave the most lasting impressions. I travel very lightly with a small backpack and love to mix in with the locals, use their currency, try (!) and learn a bit of their language while I'm with them, listen to their music and their philosophy of life - it fascinates me that life can be so different from mine, in so many places; sometimes the people I meet humble me, and sometimes they inspire me, and yes, there are times when they downright annoy me, but I get over that pretty quick! The great thing about travelling is that it tests me in so many ways, and I feel like I'm living more into myself then, than when I'm doing anything else...
