I am the wife of the same husband for over 38 years, and mother to a daughter and a son. I was born and raised in Oregon, except for the one year in California when I turned one and my sister was born, and the year I was an exchange student to Costa Rica, until we moved our family to a small town in southern Illinois. After 7 1/2 years we moved back to Oregon. While homeschooling my children I enjoyed learning history and taking field trips to U.S. historic sites. As empty-nesters my husband and I moved to Sacramento, California where I worked as a Tour Planner/Manager.
We sold most of our stuff, quit our jobs, sold our home and stored a dozen boxes of keepsakes here and there and started out on a journey in early 2015 to slowly travel the world. We were making plans to return home to take care of business and return to Chiang Mai, Thailand for a long stay when we were invited to come “home” for Thanksgiving (2016) – to meet our grand-daughter!
We are presently living normal lives in the Portland Metropolitan area, but travel is always on my mind.
This is my story.
