Lynne is a traveler and interviewer from San Diego, CA!
|I have been a member of Servas since 1999. We first learned about Servas when we were traveling in Salvador de Bahia, Brazil. As an interviewer I have been active for about 10 years and as regional coordinator for 3 years.I have traveled to Europe, SE Asia, Turkey, South America, Central America and North Africa.
I have had many wonderful Servas experiences both as a host and as a traveler. Recently I had the pleasure of traveling to Catalonia in Spain. Joaquim, my host in Girona (a city north of Barcelona) made it his project to entertain my husband John and I during our 12-day stay in the area. He took us to the beach, to small medieval towns and to meet his friends and family. Joaquim also took us hiking, he introduced us to expats and his shared the cuisine of Catolonia with us well. He was gracious, generous, intelligent and fun. It made for a memorable trip.
I enjoy hiking, cycling, reading, listening to music and eating exotic food. Travel is a passion rather than a hobby.
Servas is a wonderful organization that opens doors to other cultures. It allows us to meet people from all over the world. It helps us to understand cultures that are different from our own and allows us to share ideas, perspectives and interests. We are ambassadors for our own countries when we travel abroad.
