My husband Richard and I are both Australian. I have recently retired from my career as a librarian; Richard who was a social worker retired about 5 years ago. We are planning an independent trip of about 6 weeks to Italy in March and April next year having visited previously in early 2011.
I should be writing this in Italian as we have been learning the language for a while now and hope to improve it with this trip. We have 4 children - all grown up and except for our youngest daughter with children of their own. We love travel, art galleries, local foods, and history. We are both great readers
