I'm a 50-something writer and instructor of writing studies at the University of Alberta. Ken, an Apple Computer specialist and a pianist, and I are happily married and will most often be traveling together. We are looking forward to our first ever couples trip to Europe in July and August--7 weeks of exploration and discovery (and a narrowboat trip in there, too). We love history, architecture, nature, music, the arts, and people. We're fit, casual, independent, and travel light. Very easy to live with! We regularly host students from around the world in our 1952 continually-being-renovated (!) home as they attend the universities in our area of downtown Edmonton. We are adventurous in all ways. Regarding eating, we will try anything, but normally enjoy a lean, green, healthy diet without red meat.
