seems like right now my motto is, 'clipped wings'. siiiiigh
have raised 3 kids... they all have a life, but so do I!! I have my feet mired in a house building project right now, when that is finished, hope to consolidate a few things and hit road again. am a solo traveler... but is niiice to meet people along the way. hardest thing for me to do is decide where to go.. seems like I always return to places I have been before (of course that isn't always true or I never would have been there in the first place) am an impulse traveler, not much of a planner. hostels or 1 star hotels or mom-n-pop places are perfect, (although if a dorm stinks too much I am outta there and into a hotel... that's happened a few times!)
european architecture (french, italian, spanish, mediterranean, especially) art & history- old world plaster (walls are my canvas--- walls of shame to walls of fame) I love my coffee, can literally sit all day, reading and watching the world go by (people watcher too) antique hunting (don't get me wrong, I love museums, but I can spend more time in a junk store or warehouse than a museum any day)
Love the california foothills.... I have 13 acres, has to be the most beautiful place on planet earth. what a place to call home.
Italy, France (Sicily, Rome, Paris, Marsaille, Montpellier) my priorities to visit are Portugal, Morocco, back to Spain (and Italy again!!) Ireland, Poland, Czech Republic, Slavokia (awesome mountains!)
