Retired obstetrical nurse. I like people and I love being in the outdoors, close to natue, cycling, hiking, walking. Enjoy travel and I intend to do much more travelling. I've enjoyed visiting Havana, Cuba, Costa Rica, Hawaii,No. Ireland & the Republic, Scotland, and London, England. I've been to every state in the U.S. except Alaska and to many places in Canada.
I enjoy experiencing foods different to my usual fare. My favorite music is R&B, World, Jazz, Folk, Blues, Salsa, Celtic. I hope to visit Cuba again soon and see more of the rural parts, having been to Havana twice. The music there is outstanding.
Can't live without: succulent flavours, colourful people, new places to experience, good music, and a loving family.
Books: favorites are historical fiction & biographies. Food: all kinds. Thai is a fave.
I enjoy chatting with locals about the area and what's of interest. It's great if the host of a rented place is open to this type of conversation. I enjoy being outside; also seeing galleries, museums, points of interest historically.
Travel broadens one's horizons and opens the heart and mind to new and fascinating experiences and people. One needn't go far away, but it's magical to venture into something different.
