About Me

Since Mar 2005

Lives in Chicago, Illinois

35-49 year old female

In the past 7 years, we have been to countries in Europe, Central & South America, Asia & Africa. We do not enjoy staying in large, impersonal chain hotels - prefer small boutique hotels, family-owned places or ecolodges so that we have the opportunity to interact with the owners, staff & other guests in more natural, laid-back settings. We enjoy very active vacations with strenuous or adventurous activities (hiking, long kayak rides, rappelling, ziplining, swimming with sharks/rays, etc.) but also enjoy a few days of chilling out by the pool/on the beach/reading during all of our trips. Africa is my obsession. So far, my husband & I have been to Tanzania, South Africa, Rwanda & Uganda, but would like to see & do so much more on the continent.
