Richard is a retired epidemiologist with the state of Florida. He plays bassoon and calls contra-dances. Gayle is a gardener, a guitarist, and a hobbyist wine-maker. We both ride bicycles on and off roads, and enjoy concerts and other cultural offerings.
Usually we travel together, but occasionally Richard or Gayle will travel by themselves and book a place to stay through Airbnb. Richard will be traveling to Canberra and Melbourne, Australia by himself in March 2013, for example.
We are pretty quiet people and appreciate privacy. When we visit a location we are usually out and about most of the time. Other things being equal we like to use public transportation. We usually seek out places to experience local natural environments, good food, and culture (music, dance, art).
