I spent the summer of 1997 researching music and fiber arts in the British Isles. I continue adding to my contacts on frequent return trips. Join me as I share the interesting characters and places I have discovered on and off the beaten path. I am an upbeat and resourceful leader and organizer, and I welcome both novice and more seasoned travelers who are looking for an active adventure.

Cheers!
