I am a nurse, with a degree in Enlish Lit as well. I have two kids. I love to travel with them and with my friends. I enjoy everything, from beach to city, arts and ruins and nature and eating, especially trying new things. Tend not to like too too touristy, except of course Disney and Vegas. I will go in for the cheesy stuff on occasion. I like to balance my travels with downtime reading, relaxing, resting, and then walking and exploring. I can understand basics of a few languages, but am not fluent in any (other than English!!) If I am by the water, I am happy. I have been known to tear up when viewing something lovely, like "The Birth of Venus," the Statue of Liberty, polar bears, and the Pacific Ocean for the first time. Put me in a really nice hotel room, preferably with a nice view, a comfy bed, and room service and I am in heaven.
