My wife & I are retired professionals in our late 60's. We enjoy domestic and European travel, bicycling, downhill & cross country skiing, camping, hiking, trying new cuisines, and spending time with our 2 grandchildren.
We recently returned from a 5 week trip to Germany and the Alsace region of France. We traveled primarily by train but also 8 days by bicycle. We stay in inexpensive lodging (hostels, 2* hotels, etc.) to conserve our funds for more travel.
We are very self-sufficient, pick up after ourselves, and enjoy getting to know "the locals" and what their lives are like.
