I'm a retired government worker, and Jane is a nurse practioner currently specializing in the most difficult of HIV patients. We travelled a lot in the 60's and 70's, both separately before we met in Brazil, and then extensively together. Eighties and 90's - not so much. in 2000 we started up again; in October, 2014 we will go on our 11th overseas trip since then, and we've taken, both apart and together, numerous short trips around the US and Canada. We always travel independently, NO packages/guided tours, and we hope that Airbnb will deepen the experience for us.
