Since Jan 2013

50-64 year old female

Lakewood, Colorado

I'm an author, writer, professional speaker and adventurer. I ride, scuba, kayak, paraglide, hike, climb, skydive, do just about everything imaginable- I'm a serious athlete. Taking on the world big time and love learning the culture where I am. Hostels are my style! I try to learn the language, go the back roads, stay away from touristy areas and learn as much as I can. People and culture fascinate me. The whole world is my playground, and is a source of constant wonder. Travel is my greatest passion and my greatest teacher. While picking up a souvenir that speaks to the culture is great, I am interested in experiences. Stuff doesn't last, emotions do. Travel makes us feel engaged, alive, and sometimes totally lost, which is a fun thing. Those of us who travel a lot don't have a favorite country- that's too hard to say- we have favorite experiences, and wonderful friends. And we are constantly making more memories.
