am an avid traveler on a quest to see as many art museums, beaches,
mountains, concerts, and roller coaster parks that I can before I am
85. So far, choosing my favorite art museum is a tough call...between
the Borghese, in Rome, Italy, Guggenheim in Bilbao, Spain, AGO in
Toronto, Canada and Salvadore Dali's House in Spain. Then, of course
there's Seattle Art Museum!
I am crazy about water: favorite beach is
at Neah Bay, pulled in the canoe journey on and off for 7 years, and
swimming is part of my weekly exercise schedule. The best rollercoaster
I've been on is in Busch Gardens, St. Petersburg, Florida...next to the
first Dali museum I visited in 2004. If I'm not at school, I am doing
yoga, writing poems in response to lectures I attend at the Seattle Asian Art Museum, taking
pictures, listening to live music in Seattle, Portland...or wherever else the gas
in my tank and my budget takes me.
Some previous trips include: Sante Fe, camping in Oslo, great adventures in Stockholm,
Helsinki, Tallinn, Riga, Vilnius and Portugal.
Three times I've volunteered in Spain in a program that helps Spaniards speak conversational English. It's an ABSOLUTE BLAST for me, and I hope to go back there again and again. The program's website explains more and I highly recommend the program: Pueblo Ingles...they actually have a
teenager program so that parents can volunteer at the same time their child does, just at different venues. http://www.diverbo.com/
