We are a retired couple with a passion for traveling. Staying off the beaten path, we try to integrate with the locals so we can get a better understanding of the places we visit. Because we live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in the United States, where the long winter months can be very harsh, we feel fortunate to have that time to travel abroad and learn about other cultures. When we're home in the summer, we enjoy biking, hiking, kayaking and boating, We have downsized to a very small bungalow and lead a simple and peaceful life on the shore of Lake Superior.
