The Kinmans' hobby is to travel, and wherever they go, they visit the local Soroptimist Clubs. "We have friends all over the world now."

She's also brought back banners from Prague, Czech Republic, and Cork, Ireland.

They highly recommend Elderhostel and they are now up to thirty trips.

In addition to traveling, the Kinmans love to entertain international visitors and have hosted Rotary Group Study Exchange professionals from Japan, Hong Kong, Australia, Denmark, Germany and Brazil, as well as Soroptimist Friendship Grant winners from France, Belgium, Malaysia, Africa and Bulgaria, and Friendship Link members from England.

Long-time Los Angeles County Library co-workers meet every few months for lunch or at some interesting events such as a trip to see the butterflies in Pacific Grove.
