Hometown: Marlette, Michigan
August 2, 2013
I love to travel and want to join a group of like-minded people. Very few of my current friends are able to travel right now because they are either still working, raising kids or are not financially able to travel. I have traveled throughout Europe and the Ukraine but there are many places in the US that I want to see, including the National Parks out west. I also love to take day and weekend trips.
I traveled to Alaska last year and to the Islands, Las Vegas and to New York City to see some plays.
I would love to go to Ireland, Italy, Spain, Iceland, Finland, Denmark, Northern Canada and China. Tahaiti and Bora Bora would be nice too. How about Morocco? If I start now I can see It ALL !!!!!
My favorite trip so far was to Alaska because I was able to take my two daughters and to meet a couple of life-long friends who flew there to meet us after our cruise from Vancouver. We shared a rental car and then an RV to travel throughout Alaska during the summer. We were there for almost 6 weeks and it never got dark! Can one ever adequately describe Alaska? So vast and beautiful! Absolutely breathtaking!
I am originally from a small town in the thumb of Michigan. I attended college and taught school in south western Michigan. My (then)husband and I moved to Tallahassee after graduate school to work for the FL Dept of Educ. for 7 years. I then moved to Maimi to work for their school district and then moved to Naples to work for Collier County Public Schools.
I recentally retired from Collier Cty Schools after 30 years in education. My youngest daughter just graduated from high school, enrolled in college and is l iving with her boyfriend. Now I finally have the freedom to do what I want and to travel!
