I work so that I can use my vacation to travel and have wonderful life experiences. I like gardening, biking, sharing adventures with my mate and playing with my favorite dog friend. I am actively working on Japanese and will soon start working on the language of the country I will visit next. I have narrowed down to about 10 locations. Love the researching and planning part of the adventure. Like to include eating, cooking, kayaking, art, crafts, hiking, history, wine, meeting people and making friends.
