I like to meet local people at places where I visit, and also interest to show you about this beautiful city Vancouver where I called home.

I am a down-to-earth, respectful, and mature (in mind and not by age) person who lives in Vancouver. I'm a quiet independent person. Not into clubbing, partying, or much shopping. I like history, art, scenery, architecture, and nature.

If you are visiting Vancouver, feel free to contact me with a brief description about yourself and what are you hoping to see in Vancouver. Then I can reply back and hopefully get together and show you a bit about Vancouver if our schedule permit. If not, at the very least, I can give you some recommendations.
I have been living in Vancouver for 28 years and volunteering over 18 years and have some perks which allow me to bring a guest to visit some local attractions for free and that can be you.

Ultimately hope to find a travel buddy to explore places like Asia and Europe. I enjoy cycling, kayaking trip, gardening, the outdoors like a short hike, indoor museum adventures, and I absolutely love food (mostly casual dining with fine dining on special occasions).

I value friendship based on who the person is inside, and not on your profession, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, etc. I am happily married to my husband, and purely looking for a travel companion, friendship, and meeting down to earth nice people to show you this amazing city where I call home --- Vancouver.

Thanks for reading my profile and hope to exchange a few email prior meeting up in person.
