Since Apr 2005

50-64 year old male

Mason City, Iowa

My wife and I are both retired teachers (took early retirement this year!). We've traveled extensively, especially in Europe. We love Austria in the winter, Tuscany and the Greek Islands in the summer, and usually take an exotic spring break...One year it was Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt; another the Canary Islands; another Hawaii; China; etc. We've been to Australia and would like to return. This past year we've had a trip per month to celebrate our early retirement. We've really enjoyed going all over the world. We just got back from Istanbul, Turkey, (loved it!) and our trip next month is to the Cotswolds. We truly enjoy our travels!
