Something about ourselves
I am retired, and want to spend some time traveling, both by myself, and with my husband. We like to settle down a bit in places we are visiting, to get to know the area and how people live. Home stays help us slow down and discover those aspects of a place that stay hidden from those who just stay in the usual tourist haunts. I've lived in France and Africa, speak French, some Spanish, and smatterings of some other languages. We look forward to spending time again in Europe, Asia, and Africa. We're also interested in exchanges in the US, to visit children and enjoy other fun places, especially southern California and New York.
