I read a lot of mysteries. l work for an airline, so I have traveled all over the US and some countries in Europe. I really liked Denmark,Amsterdam and Paris, but have not got a favorite place to go, my favorite type of travel is a cruise, because you don't have to do anything if you don't want to or you can do all kinds of things. I listen to Jazz and Country, no particular favorite bands or artists. My favorite animal is cats.
