I am a newly retired teacher who now has some time to travel. I love seeing historical and cultural sites, eating at places that are traditional or in some way identify with the location I am visiting. Unique places fascinate me. I am an avid reader and researcher, and love exploring new places by walking. I don't mind getting lost in an interesting place ( yes, even cemeteries) and enjoy experiencing the culture around me. I haven't seen nearly enough of this beautiful planet!
