My name is Makara and I live in Colorado, USA. I am a 50 yr old woman who absolutely loves to travel! I even manage to bring my man (Manfred~the Deutsch speaker) along with me sometimes. I have a retirement pension and am in great health. I have an open mind, friendly nature, and love learning new cultures and languages. When I travel to a country, I like to stay for at least 2 months, usually 3-4 so I can experience life there more like a local than a tourist. I love food and cooking, watching movies, bike riding, reading in local cafes, and making new friends. My favorite country so far is Italy. Mi piace molto Italia!! My life motto? "What you believe, is!"
