- Barbara Sales Rep in the Gift Industry (67)
- Charles Retired Atty and Consultant (70)
Greetings from Providence
I (Barbara) recently retired from my job as sales rep in the gift industry and my husband (Charles) is a consultant. Our children are grown. I speak fairly fluent Spanish and I'm working on my French. We have 1 son who teaches middle school math in the Boston area and another who works in sales in Washington, DC. There is a possiblity that our son(s) might travel with us.
We have traveled extensively in South America (though it's been a long while since we did that) and we've vacationed in Spain, France, Denmark, Italy, Portugal, and England. Charles has made multiple trips to China, Vietnam and Japan for business. We've exchanged 4 times before and rented twice as well.....always successfully.
We love meeting new people and we're flexible and resilient. We've met many international students through a host family program at Brown university. In addition, I teach ESL (on a volunteer basis for the local International House).

We love last-minute brunches, lunches, cocktail parties, picnics, potlucks. We've even turned our garage into a summer dining room so that we can host parties of 20 in our courtyard and "dining room".
We especially like including foreign guests and we've had many as I volunteer as an ESL teacher and we welcome international PhD candidates at Brown.
