Since Mar 2005

65+ year old female

Long Island, NY

I am a former Spanish teacher, totally enamored of Spain (21 trips), but have enjoyed traveling to many other countries. My husband and I prefer to stay at 4 star hotels and dine on the local cuisine, staying away from American-type restaurants & chains. Since I speak Spanish fluently, I can also manage to get by in other Romance languages & enjoy speaking in foreign languages as much as possible.
