Our family has travelled extensively and culminated with a 14 month RTW trip in 2009. We enjoyed meeting new people and building friendships around the world. Enjoy a variety of food and always try to seek out new tastes and experiences. A perfect day would be to visit new sights, try some local wines, catch the vibe of the region and listen to some cool jazz. We are casual in our approach and feel that our open-mindedness allows us to broaden the horizon.
