Enjoys the outdoors especially hiking, anything near water--ocean and lakes; spending time with my husband and older kids and of course, reading! Have traveled to Europe a few times to the non tourist areas of France--hiking and learning the culture. Future plans include visiting Italy--Montenarodomo-where some family still resides.
