I'm a wife and mother of two grown daughters and currently live in Northwestern Ohio. I've been besotted with traveling since I was a child. Took my first overseas trip at the age of 4 when we moved to Japan because it was my dad's next duty station, and my love for traveling has never diminished. Traveling exposes you to so many wonderful things! It's also educational in an unexpected way...it teaches you that the way we do things at home is not the only way to do them, nor is it always the best way.
Love good food and shopping. Reading is also a favorite pastime of mine...and I'm not picky about what I read either! Biographies, mysteries, travel books and all sorts of fiction and non-fiction...I love 'em all! Also love animals of all sorts...especially dogs!
As for my travel style, I can sleep in a tent or a five-star hotel. Both are equally enjoyable!
