Dan & Jennifer are playful, friendly people. We love to hike, bike, dance, white water raft, rock climb and camp. We also enjoy the eclectic lifestyle offered by Boise downtown. We appreciate Idaho Opera, Boise philharmonic Orchestra, Idaho Dance Theatre, fine dining, the art galleries, thrifting, local vineyards, and book groups. We enjoy travel and have visited 10 states and 5 countries during our 10 years together. We appreciate the rich diversity of our human family and welcome interaction with people from other cultures and spiritual paths. Favorite food - Thai, Italian, cookies and ice cream. Favorite music - jazz, gospel & classic rock.
If you're new to town and feel like company we'd welcome you to join us on outings, at our parties and other activities you may enjoy. We're super social but will leave you to yourself if you prefer.
Jennifer has lived in Europe and can have a basic conversation in Italian, French, German and American Sign-language. She is fairly comfortable with Spanish and will enjoy speaking Español with you exclusively while you are here if you're willing or prefer.
