Welcome to a part of my online world, relating my happily-homeless interval between years of running a bed and breakfast in Virginia and the years ahead making a new home … where, TBD.


I’m Pat Patterson, Vagabond Pat these days. Single and most often solo, I think I have a great talent for enjoying life, age and budget no matter. I thrive on numerous passions: travel, classical music and opera, healthy gourmet food whether dining out or cooking in for friends old or new, wine, learning and using foreign languages, creating websites, teaching English, reading history … “It takes two” is not so true!
Dreaming of changing your life? Trying something new? Don’t let being alone stop you. Life is short! JUST DO IT.
