Richard. You have met your match. Look no further.
I was born in Latvia, grew up in CA, graduated from U.C. Berkeley in Biological Sciences and spent most of adult life on the east coast (mostly Northern Virginia). I was married 21 years before it unraveled and had a daughter and son.
When I graduated from CAL, while deciding what to do with my life, I applied to the airlines. (Back then it was a big deal to be a “Stewardess”). It was a perfect job for me. I put a lot of myself into it and loved making people glad they were taking a trip that day. I stayed with the airlines for over thirty years, and left them approximately a year and a half ago. It was a great ride but decided it was time to start crossing some things off my life’s list.
Who I am: I am described by others as attractive, intelligent with a good sense of humor. My own opinion is that I am a special, unique, multifaceted individual who does not fit stereotypes. I am attractive but I have a brain. I am strong and capable and yet soft and vulnerable. I am self assured but nice. I am classy but not afraid to try to fix a toilet. My interests are varied. I do not look, act, or feel my age and I approach life with enthusiasm. Sometimes I am nutty and fun loving, sometimes serious and intellectual. I want to constantly learn and I read voraciously.
The one thing I do know for sure is that travel is a part of my soul and who I am. I am suffering from incurable wanderlust. I have an adventuresome spirit, a great curiosity about things, and I count my blessings for all the wonderful things that have happened to me in my life.
India was particularly fascinating to me. So many asked “yuk, why would you want to go there?” One must look beyond the filth, poverty, beggars, lepers, cripples and cow dung, etc. to sea the beauty that lies in this vast vibrant country. The Maharajas lived in regal splendor and created magnificent forts, palaces, castles, and sandstone cities with splendor seen rarely elsewhere.
I am excited for all the good things that are yet to come. Life is good. Let’s go on a trip, Richard.
