My wife and I are a young-at-heart couple who love to travel and meet other people across many cultures. We're members of (website hidden) and Servas, and I volunteer as an immigrant mentor. We've lived in Australia & Costa Rica, sailed the Greek Islands, and cycled through Provence and from Venice to Florence. We prefer family-run hotels, or staying with people. In the next few years, we look forward to Spain, Portugal, Croatia, Botswana, Peru, Bali, and Thailand. Besides English, one or both of us speak Spanish, Portuguese, German, some French & little Italian. Even when we're home in Vancouver, we love trying new ethnic food and entertainment. When staying with people, we're pretty flexible, although we do enjoy a real bed, and we always appreciate wide-ranging conversations with our hosts. People who stay with us get pretty much the same thing. We're also a couple of romantics, and we celebrated 30 years of wonderful marriage last year, and have launched two great young men on the world. A motto? Make new connections!
