Hi! I am Dee and I am in my mid 30's and married to my wonderful husband for the past 8 years. By day, I work part time as a registered vet tech for the veterinary dermatologist and I run my own pet care business and my husband teaches environmental science to 5th and 6th graders in the Santa Cruz mountains. During our free time, together we enjoy traveling, snow boarding, rock climbing, scuba diving, music festivals and camping. My biggest passion in life is horseback riding and my husband is a die hard surfer who also enjoys working in the garden and relaxing in his hammock while listening to reggae tunes. We are both very passionate about the environment and doing our part to reduce our footprint on this planet.
We love traveling and seeing the world and we make an effort to travel out of the county about every other year. We have been to places such as Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Costa Rica, Panama, Nicaragua, Hawaii, Europe, Philippines and Sri Lanka. When we travel, we travel without any specific agenda and let life guide us to where we belong. All we need is our trusty Lonely Planet guide book and we find ourselves at great hostels and air bnbs where like minded travelers gather to share stories and experiences. We enjoy good company and fun positive people that inspire us to become better individuals. We are fortunate in where we live and the beautiful home we live in and we would be blessed to share it with others while we are out on our own life adventures. Our motto in life: "Find what you love and love what you find."
