Pete and I are 45 and 40, respectively. We have been together 13 years and married for 8. We do not have kids, except for Mr. Blue, our cat. Pete is a fish biologist and I work in government relations in the private sector. We love living in the Pacific Northwest but we also like to travel anywhere and everywhere. Our favorite trips include Croatia (mine), Thailand/Cambodia (Pete's), Turkey and Cuba (both). In the U.S., we both loved the culture and flat out uniqueness of New Orleans. Some of our favorites when we travel include museums, bookstores, ethnic or local restaurants, walking tours, hiking, historical sites, universities and figuring out/experiencing public transportation (subways are great, but the bus is an ACHIEVEMENT). We also like plays or other local shows. I'm not really into bands/music, although Pete is a big music person (we can't always get everything we want in a partner, I tell him). We are morning people and are too old to stay out past 11:00! We are also quiet and respectful. When we travel we generally get up early, spend much of the morning/afternoon exploring the city, return for a nap and then go out again for dinner and/or entertainment.
