You might say Charlene has been in travel mode since she was born. As a child growing up she lived in the states of California, Washington, Texas, Michigan, Rhode Island, Indiana and Ohio and enjoyed camping or cottage stays in various locations on family vacations. After spending a summer in Norway as an AFS student during high school then graduating from Muskingum College with her elementary teaching degree, she married Jim Dalrymple and again was on the move living in Ohio, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, before settling in St. Louis in 1984. As a mother, teacher, and Girl Scout leader, she has encouraged and shared her love of travel in the USA and as a tour planner and tour manager with Sunrise Tours; she loves the opportunity to continue to do so with others eager to travel.
