Since Mar 2005

50-64 year old female

The Dalles, Oregon

Husband Mike and I are retired educators. In ‘03 we spent a month in Belize and Guatemala with our 3 kids, first trip to CA since visits to Guatemala in the 80’s (middle child is native of Guat, joined us through adoption). Starting in 2005 I’ve split 4-6 wks each summer between a Spanish immersion program (usually with a group in tow) and vacation time with Mike. We love a combo of Guatemala with blue water time in Honduras or Belize or occasionally México. We have an small home on Lake Atitlán - perfect base for us.
