John is a retired economist and web developer. Beth is a biologist specializing in native plants and environmental restoration. Beth has lived in Europe and Africa, as well as traveled in Central America, Asia, Mexico, and New Zealand. She speaks pretty good German, reasonable Spanish and French (can read and understand). John has traveled in the US, Canada, New Zealand and Italy, and now wants to see more of Europe. We enjoy great architecture, old neighborhoods and good food and wine.
