Denise and Don have been happily together for 40 years. They both attended the University of California at Riverside, California State University Humboldt, and Lane Community College in Eugene Oregon. Between them they’ve worked all sorts of jobs ranging from pot washer and bicycle mechanic to pharmacy technician and hair stylist. For the past 10 years, Denise has been a professional tour manager leading groups for Holland America, Let’s Go Travel, and most recently Collette Vacations. Before leaving to travel, Don was a vice president of the University of Oregon Foundation in charge of their information systems. They launched their around the world trip from Eugene, Oregon, but today they reside in Prescott, Arizona where they are reestablishing a home base and planning their next adventure.
