65+ year old female

Seattle, Washington

I love France and am looking forward to my 6th trip in 20+ years this May. I'm meeting a friend in Paris where we are renting an apartment for 2+ weeks. In September 2013, I rented an apartment in Paris for two weeks - solo - and loved it. I had never been to Hawaii until May 2011. I've now been there five times, visiting 5 islands for a total 16+ weeks. My favorite is the Big Island where I like to spend a month each year to escape Seattle's rain. I usually travel with my mother who is 90 and uses a 4-wheel walker, but doesn't want to miss a thing. We are now to the point where renting a house and day-tripping is the best way for us to travel. That way we can take a day off and "stay home" in relative comfort. However, I doubt that she will make another trip to Europe. Our last trip was in 2010 for 5 weeks in Provence, Languedoc, and the Dordogne with brief visits in Paris, Burgundy and Normandy. Fortunately, she lets me go without her! Bon voyage & Aloha!
