As everyone on this site, I love travel and new advertures. I have been to Ireland, England, Scotland, Paris, and Hawaii for the far away trips. I do a lot of travel around my homestate of Washington too. My trip to Costa Rica this August will be the first by myself and look forward to learning about a new place. <BR>I live north of Seattle, WA in a condo with my dog, cat and 2 grown kids (19 & 21)... do they ever go away!? Ah... but I love 'em. I teach 1st grade and am lucky enough to have some time off in the summer for advertures!
