  I also like to travel to various historical locations, like the ones above. So far, my favorite is Italy but I'm still new to travelling. Looking at spending a few months every year in Europe. As a freelancer, I have the flexibility to do so. No kids but great friends and their kids. I'm like the fun travelling aunty. I'm a casual traveler, as I like looking at cathedrals, architecture in general, museums, ancient sites, temples, cities, and just randomly exploring for the best food/cuisine at a great price. That's me in a nutshell... did I mention I'm 420 friendly? Well, now you know.
