We are a couple from the west coast of British Columbia, Canada. Cindy is 52 and Ken 61. Cindy teaching cooking to high school students and Ken creates beautiful furniture and cabinets. We love to kayak, hike, cycle, do yoga, photography (Ken) read, sightsee, eat, cook, wander around, beach comb, watch movies, have a glass or wine or beer (or perhaps 2!), meet new people and find out about local history. We are hoping to start our European tour in Venice (for Carnivalle) and then fly to Sicily and drive back up to Milan and then probably head to Spain and then France. We are both taking a few months off of work and are very excited about seeing this part of Europe together. Between us we have 5 grown children. Ken has twins (Rory and Becca 22 years old) and Cindy -- Jessica 32, Juleah 24 and Daniel 21.
