We are a retired couple who enjoy travelling and meeting new people. We are trying to visit other parts of the world (although southern Italy keeps calling us back!) to experience different cultures and - very important to us - different cuisine! We enjoy our family, our dogs,our garden, eating out, reading, and going to see live music. All our reviewsare excellent; we are delighted to have had so many happy guests.
