Formerly from Alaska for 30 years, I have also done extensive travel and or living in Europe, the Middle East, some in Africa. I am, of course, anxious to travel more. I have always been very keen on athletics: non technical elevation climbing, downhill and cross country skiing, bicycling, more casual hiking. I am an adventuresome sort and looking for my next one.
Since arriving in Seattle, I am thoroughly enjoying all of the amenties that the Pacific NW offers. I am located in the hub of what is happening in the Seattle area for access to all that might be needed: coffee shops galore, bars and restaurants for the foodies...anything you could want, wonderful social life, and of course, the Seattle Art
Museum which has amazing exhibits. Accessible bus transportation anywhere you want to go. Plus there are all the activities related to the water of Puget Sound, Lake Union and Lake Washington. Technology, hospitals, and medical research facilities are located in close proximity.
