I am an artist and educator, getting on in age and experience. I usually travel several times a year for work and pleasure, mostly in Europe but also in the U.S. and Asia. I enjoy staying in places where I get a feel of daily life by shopping for food, cooking and living in a neighborhood that is not all hotels. When I travel , I like to see art and architecture and maybe enjoy contemporary culture, such as concerts or theatre performances. I love to explore big cities, but alo natural and rural environments interest me. i like to travel with my husband and family, but also sometimes to go by myself or with colleagues and friends.
