I am a retired teacher. I loved teaching 5th and 7th grades for 30 years but find retirement extremely rewarding. I have traveled much of my life and enjoy learning about other cultures and meeting new people. When I was young I traveled from Istanbul overland to India and Nepal. On my first trip to Europe in 1970, I met many of my German relatives in the Schabish part of Germany. Many have been to the States to visit me and I still look forward to visiting them. In 1971, returning home from Amsterdam to NY, I had a $100 Greyhound bus pass. I sat with a Swiss gal from Albuquerque, NM to Flagstaff, AZ. I invited her to visit me and my family. She did and we've been friends all these years. Some of my favorite countries are Ireland, New Zealand, Bali and Switzerland. The blend of friendliness and beauty are hard to beat. I love traveling in my country and have been to all but two states. My favorite activities are riding my horse, and boating and camping on Lake Powell. I love being in nature. I enjoy a good book and watching a good movie. I still like traveling but it's not as easy to leave with animals and 3 acres to keep up. I appreciate the wonderful group of friends I have and the many adventures we share together. It's true that life is an adventure and I hope you'll allow me to help make your trip to Page and this beautiful area, an adventure you'll treasure forever.
