I love to travel, and have spent considerable time in Latin America. (My daughter was born in Peru.) I have simple needs; like to explore new places; and find that interacting with the "locals" and learning about local culture --- including foods -- is more important to me than visiting monuments and museums. I "took" retirement in August, 2013, but expect to continue working, hopefully with shorter and more flexible hours when I return to the States. In the meanwhile, I have come to Spain to hike the Camino from St. Jean Pied de Port. I will take it slowly, but hope to I will have at least a month to travel around Spain before returning home from Barcelona in late November.
