we are from a small town near Charlottesville Virginia. Have traveled quite a bit. My husband grew up in NY, went to school for preforming arts-horn, is registered nurse. I grew up in various countries, my dad was a geologist. Now, as time permits we want to travel more. Went to the central highlands of Mexico a few years ago and loved that. Looking into Costa Rica as a possibility as well. We both adore dogs and animals.
