I am a retired high school media specialist, with a husband, 3 grown children, and 4 grandchildren.  I love to travel, and in the course of my life, I have been to Europe twice, the Caribbean, and various states in the US. However, I am from the South, and have done most of my traveling there. I have had lots of fun trips and experiences that I would love to share. I am looking forward to my husband’s retirement in a couple of years, so we can get back on the road!
