I love to travel and meet people from other cultures and countries! My father was in the U.S. military while I was growing up so I spent part of my childhood overseas in Europe and the Philippines. I enjoy researching my family's ancestry and would be very interested in swapping homes with someone in the Yorkshire and London areas of England, especially during the summer months. I also enjoy hiking, camping, outdoor sports, water sports, sailing, scuba diving, beaches, nightlife, history, reading, museums, and just plain relaxing at the beach with a Margarita in my hand, my toes in the sand, and Calypso music playing in the background.
