I live in California because I love the sunshine, moderate temps, and clean air of the central coast. I have also lived many years in Germany where much of my family lives, as well as in Luxembourg and Spain. I've been a professional classical singer for many years, and in mid-life I added a career as a marriage and family therapist. My husband and I love food, wine, camping, reading, walking, meeting people and animals. Some of our favorite memories involve camping in France, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, and the Netherlands - we had even taught our 4 cats to become camping kitties! Of course many European campground are like 3-4 star hotels, except you bring your own room.
My husband has had a food, wine, and travel radio show for 8 years. We have a passion for budget travel and we love to share our experiences, travels, and life lessons with others, while we also value our privacy and the opportunities to meditate, read, and occupy peaceful space.
