I am a content, adventurous, vegetarian (some seafood) woman who is as happy being out and about with friends at dinner, movies, plays, dancing, and hiking, as I am curled up at home with my dogs, working on my various photo and video projects, listening to music, watching movies or enjoying good fiction.
My family and friends are very important to me. Beyond those close at hand, I spend at least some vacation time each year visiting those afar.
I have a passion for travel, having visited all 50 states and over 40 countries including Tibet, China, Kenya and Tanzania, Japan, Australia, Bolivia, and countries throughout Europe and Central America. I have enjoyed scuba diving in places such as Bonaire, Honduras, Belize and Hawaii. My most recent trip (9/12) was three weeks in Spain walking the Camino from Léon to Santiago. Next ideas: Galapagos, a barge cruise in France, and a long road trip through the United States and Canada.
I enjoy the excitement and energy of cities like New York and Chicago as well as quiet and closeness to nature while hiking in places like Glacier National Park, the Tetons, and Yosemite. When traveling, I am rarely without a camera in my hand.
I grew up in the Chicago area and have lived in Arizona, the Bay Area in California, Reno, NV, and Córdoba, Spain. I have had the good fortune to enjoy a variety of career experiences such as being the director of school library/media centers, working in sales and marketing for Apple Computer, and currently being a retired academic librarian who works part time on a project that provides continuing education programs for practicing veterinarians.
Variety is an elixir for me: there’s so much to experience and savor!
I'm looking for someone to share the adventures and the quiet times with me. I would like everything from easy-going daily "how was your day?" conversations, to shared good times whether at home watching movies or entertaining friends, or out for dinner, plays, or music. And, of course, I would love to have a travel companion who enjoys planning adventures as well as going on them.
I would enjoy getting together for lunch followed by a shared activity: hiking in the woods, going to a museum, seeing a matinee movie or play.
