It's high time to post a profile (November 2021).

I was born in New Jersey, USA, and came to Germany at the tender age of  21 ... and am still here. I got a late start into cycling. At the age of 41 and with my youngest son, I went on my first bicycle trip. We cycled the hills of Umbria with a tent and little clue about bicycle touring, but it was love at first sight. That was a long time ago and there have been many turns of the wheel since then. My husband, Janos, and I have toured together in most of Europe and some of Southeast Asia and China.

That trike looks a bit too big for me, but I was determined.
My first tour, with Daniel, 1981
Excited to be cycling in the Dolomites, 1985
Touring in southwest France with a group of friends, 1986, and not wearing a helmet yet.
Fast forward - when not touring, we do lots of short rides near home, sometimes in the rain, but preferably not, 2020
We travel slow and I stop for lots of pictures of cows, 2020
With my husband and best bicycling buddy, 2021
