Most Memorable Travel Experience
So many...dancing in the desert near Siwa oasis in Egypt with some Berbers, attending a wedding reception at a French marquis' chateau, climbing to Machu Picchu, seeing the magical Ramayana danced in Bali, having dinner at the home of my Turkish friends, experiencing the most phenomenal, creative meal at Denis Martin restaurant in Switzerland, having handmade noodles on an alley in Shanghai, watching the Nadaam Festival in Mongolia, wandering alone at Ta Prohm temple in Cambodia, swimming in waterfalls with my fiancé in Laos, eating gelato in Rome, playing ragtime on a bicycle piano in Tokyo for 6 months!
My husband and I love to meet like-minded folks to hook up with on our travels, and we're happy to take folks around our home town (Long Beach / Los Angeles, CA)...please email me!

you sound like a very intriguing person. I live near Dominical, Costa Rica came here by way of Dana Point, CA. Just started traveling after 45 years of dreaming, always waiting for the 'perfect time' until one day I said NOW is the perfect time and just did it...alone..with no plan. Anyways it was the easiest decision but it is not easy to make a living...but it is soooooooooooooo worth it and the only regret is I did not do this sooner. Anyways, glad you had fun on your trip to Dominical and maybe one day I will bump into your friends because this town is small.
