About Me

Since Jun 2006

Lives in United States

65+ year old male

We live in South Africa half the year. Our home is in Oregon, USA. I am Dutch and my wife is born in the US. We are well traveled and prefer to travel alone.. Group trips are not for us. We are at our best "self driving" and have a nice 4X4 set up to do that. Self catering cottages are our preference as a toilet and shower are fabulous after being in the heat and dust all day. Nature and photography for our own enjoyment and not professional are for us. We enjoy Summer and Fall twice in one year! We have both traveled extensively in our past "work" life and during those trips usually stayed in high end facilities. We find this life offers us the best of everything. The people and regular outdoor markets and wildlife nourish us. We are way past the white table cloths and silver salvers however a really nice tent camp is a joy. My background is high tech electronics and my wife's is both in hospital and pre-hospital medical research. We love to "people watch" .
