My wife and I are just over 60! We love global travel!
We have been fortunate to explore and enjoy many wonderful places around the world! Our travel style is very active because we simply delight in doing everything from physical to cultural to gastronomic activities.
Our budget (fairly high) demands value for price paid. We do not camp. Food and wine is a real focus on every trip. Where we enjoy each meal is carefully chosen. Mr Strand eats anything except s'mores. We have extensively toured several wine regions around the globe (New Zealand, Australia, all areas of Europe and of course here in California, OR & WA)
We seek out ranger led programs and hire private guides in historic cultural centers.
Enjoy is our favorite word!
