My self-summary
I am Adventurous, Affectionate, and Accepting.

Finding someone who loves travel as much as I do isn't easy. Everyone indicates that travel is one of their interests - a couple of trips a year for a couple of weeks at a time. Most people are attached to hearth, home, and family. I'm a wanderer and am looking for another nomad as my partner.

I have an RV, so almost all of my domestic travel is in that vehicle – my closet, my kitchen, my bedroom. No need to pack and unpack a suitcase; cheaper per night than a hotel room. During the day I’m out sightseeing: national parks, historical sites, museums of all kinds, factory tours, local cuisine restaurants. At night in the camper I use my computer or do pencil games (Ken Ken, crosswords, Sudoku, logic problems). There’s no TV. I’ve hosted friends and relatives in my RV. There’s plenty of room for two. In the evenings the two of us play board games.

I love traveling overseas and have lived in or visited more than 80 countries. I take those trips independently, not with a group. I plan well, but stay flexible; e.g., I don’t make hotel reservations ahead of time. My most recent trip was 50 days in Japan last fall, and I spent 59 days in Morocco and Portugal during April and May of 2015.
What I’m doing with my life
A year ago I visited Pinnacles and Death Valley national parks in California, then went to Zion, Arches, and Canyonlands in Utah; stayed in Minnesota with my sister for four weeks; and arrived in Tamworth, NH, my hometown in mid-May, having driven 14,537 miles in my RV since Oct. 22, 2015. I attended a week-long singing camp in the Berkshires last July and 10 days' worth of square dance camp at Lake of the Ozarks, MO, in August. From August 31, 2016, until October 19 I toured Japan from the North to the South of the country. It was a wonderful trip, as all my overseas travels are. And I lost around 9 lbs. from all my walking. I left New Hampshire Nov. 2, 2016, arrived in Arizona Nov. 11, stopping for sightseeing along the way. I spent Christmas with my son who lives in Las Vegas and went back to visit him again April 2 - 3. I've been in Minnesota for two weeks, heading back home on April 24, and then to London in May for a couple of days before heading to Eastern Europe for about 50 days of travel in those countries: Romania, Bulgaria, Albania, Bosnia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Serbia . . .

The first things people usually notice about me
I smile a lot. I speak with joy in my voice. I move quickly, am agile, and seem younger than my age.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The travel guidebooks I use to plan future trips are thoroughly highlighted and studied.

I've loved all the books by Susan Howatch. Pillars of the Earth, by Ken Follett, has been my very favorite novel. I don't go to movies or watch them on TV. I listen to NPR while driving.

I don't listen to most music, though I love to sing. I'm an alto in the two singing groups I belong to.

Greek, Japanese, and Indian are my favorite cuisines.
Six things I could never do without
A challenge - whether it be in planning and carrying out my travels, playing board games, singing the correct harmonies with my groups, or Challenge level square dancing.

Mental stimulation - from conversation, reading, or problem solving.

Stamina, energy, and good health.
Variety and new experiences.
Warm weather ☼
I spend a lot of time thinking about
why good papaya, which tastes so wonderful, can only be found in a couple parts of the country.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've taken eleven Myers-Briggs-type tests, mostly on this site. The results have been ISTP - 3 times, ISTJ - 3 times, ESTJ - 2 times, and ISFP, ENTP, and INTJ each once. So what does that mean? Eight times an introvert; nine times sensing instead of intuiting; ten times thinking; about half perceiving, half judging. I guess it means that you can't base much on test results.

I played the Lumosity games for a while. My subscores put me between the 95.5 and 99 percentiles, and my general score was 97.6 percentile. How about you?

The one thing in the personality graph below that I disagree with is the last item: less friendly. I see myself as very friendly and open to people.

I am unique and untypical.
You should message me if
My ideal partner is adventuresome – in travel, food, activities. His spirit and freedom are not restricted by health, weight, career, family, or financial issues. He feels like and has the endurance of a 40-year old, no matter his chronological age. He is intelligent, well read, a good conversationalist. He retains the sense of wonder about people and new things that he had as a child.
