I love to discover new places and am very interested in the history and background of every travel destination. My husband and I have been fortunate to spend significant amounts of time in Europe, the British Isles, Ireland, Mexico, the Caribbean, and all the provinces of Canada. We have lived in several states and have visited almost all the states in the U.S. (we have several "favorites" that we revisit a lot). We enjoy talking with local people wherever we travel. We love whitewater, hiking, museums, resorts, cottages, and bed and breakfasts. Village or city, we are always having a great time. We look forward to finding that special restaurant, and I love shopping, book stores, and gourmet food stores. We have only been on one tour and that was in the Soviet block (due to language and security issues at the time). We have enjoyed Windjammer Cruises and consider ourselves to be very independent travelers. I usually read 10 - 15 books on the locations we plan to visit to understand the history and also find those "hidden" places. I find planning and doing the research for our trips to be part of the complete enjoyment of traveling. Our basic philosphy of traveling is "see a lot of a little" - no 14 cities in 10 days for us!
