Since May 2004

65+ year old female

Newport Beach, California

I am a very well educated and now retired professional lady. I was in international marketing at an aerospace firm, and then I was an investment advisor and financial planner for individuals. I have lived in England (London), The Hague (Holland), Florence, Italy and the eastern province of Saudi Arabia. I speak smatherings of several languages and think it is only polite to speak other languages when visiting other countries. I like to keep a low profile when traveling and do everyday things like go to the grocery store, drive, etc. I spend months researching my trips so I don't waste time when I get there and can go right out the door to the first item on my itinerary. People say that when you travel with me you won't miss anything! I now do about four major international group escorted tours a year, most recently New Zealand, East Africa (by vintage train), Scandinavia and Russia, Omaha and Japan.
