Dee, (the love of my life) and I once crossed paths in a small fishing village in southern Spain 50 years ago when we were children. Our military parents worked at the time on a U.S. Navy base. We didn't truly meet until 3 years ago, and as fate would have it, we became a couple.
We both have travelled the world, I spent 10 years in Spain (on the beach!),and Dee was not only in Spain, but spent a few years in Japan as well while in high school.I have relatives in England, Australia,Italy, India,and Mauritius, and throughout the U.S..
We love to meet and converse with people from all walks of life, and especially people from outside the United States.
