We are a traveling family, we love to explore new places and meet new people. Originally from England, Steve (my husband) and I traveled extensively before settling down in LA 25+ years ago. Our 12 year old twin sons also have the travel bug, although because of school and time most of our traveling is in the US and we mainly go camping.
We love having friends over for dinner (I love to cook) or just to hang out with us.
