Since Aug 2002

50-64 year old female

Charlotte, North Carolina

Married with 2 kids, both now early-mid 20's; we love traveling together as often as possible. Mostly we are "travelers" not "tourists". Always try to find accommodations that are unique and locally owned...clean and well maintained. We rarely go for luxury accommodations or fine dining, they rarely give you a "real feel" of an area, and many times aren't owned by locals. We own a small business, and feel that it is important whenever possible to support other small business owners. I love to research areas to visit; culture, history, local food, etc. I enjoy reading non-fiction books on areas I'm researching & also finding fiction/novels set in the area or books written by local writers. We own a vacation home on Holden Beach, NC, & spend a lot of time in Boone, NC area. Also usually make 1 or 2 trips to Florida each year, whether Disney World or total opposite Florida Keys, we love it! Also enjoy International travel, especially throughout Asia.
