We are middle aged couple, children all grown and gone. Me, the husband has spent over twenty years traveling the world and now I want to show my wife many of the wonderous places I have been and let her meet the wonderful people I have met and do it less as tourist. We enjoy nice wines, good books and movies. We are a semi professional couple and we pride ourselves on having a well apppointed home that is clean and comfortable.
