Since Oct 2011

65+ year old male

Umbria, Italy

Been traveling all my life since I was 3 years old. Alright, so I didn't WALK much then. Seen all of Europe, LIVED for periods of time in many European cities (for my former job), spent ALL my Summers in Switzerland until I was 21, we also LIVED in the French Alps as well as in Holland, and traveled back and forth to and through Eastern Europe for the past 37 years. We now live in Umbria, Italy, for most of the year! I just LOVE mountains, history, landscapes, historic buildings and places and am a WW2 History buff at that (so Normandy is one of my favorite places). Because of my love for riding touring motorcycles I ultimately founded a little motor touring company called EuropeRides.com, where you can read more about me and my Nina.
