We are a couple in our 50s who love to travel and learn about other cultures. We like to see how other people live rather than staying in the tourist resorts. Denise (that’s me) is a community college librarian who loves nature, reading and outdoor sports. David is a semi-retired researcher in the pharmaceutical business. In his spare time he enjoys bodyboarding and working in his garden. We have a daughter age 29 who lives in Santa Barbara, and sometimes comes along when we travel. Our son, 21, is an engineering student in Pennsylvania. We are all respectful of other people’s property and belongings.
