I am a Canadian woman with a work history in public libraries, hospitality and storytelling. My passions include reading good books, newspapers, hiking in forests and walking interesting urban neighbourhoods. I have practiced yoga for over 30 years and recently spent 5 years traveling in South Asia and living in India. I am a mother of a beautiful adult daughter. I do not do social media but am happy to provide any additional personal information on request. I look forward to discovering the wonder of Italy and enjoy spontaneous, independent travel.
