Interaction with guests
I would love to give my guests as much privacy as needed. I will be at home to welcome you and to help you ease into the environment. I will also be available to answer questions as needed. If there are any community events planned for specific dates and time I'd share this with my guests who are very welcome to attend as well.
It is family focused and for this reason and many more I have lived here for three years, and I have developed very strong ties to the neighborhood; especially the yearly garage sale events. As there are two main universities and numerous colleges in the city, you are guaranteed to run into other working professionals and students from different countries; needless to say that it is a diverse community that welcomes all.
There is a lot that meets the eyes in this community from food, beauty and fashion, night life, cultural themes, health and more. Please do not hesitate to share your interests and passion with me as you are guaranteed to find something that will speak to your personality.
Guests will have access to public transit; bus stop is five minutes walk from my home.

Other things to note
This is where you can witness the rural and urban small communities get fused as one. Spend the day exploring great works of art by visiting local museums like the Clay and Glass museum or the evenings and nights listening to jazz if you are a jazz lover at the Jazz Room. Visit the various farmer's markets or spend the mornings hiking, golfing or on rides like those found at the Chicopee centre! Residents of Waterloo like myself will be too obliged to work with you as you discover this beautiful city.
Pharmacies and medical buildings, two big hospitals, restaurants and bars, retail stores, movie theatres, gyms, library, gift and souvenir shops, parks, lovely trials, and more.

I am a working professional with two wonderful elementary aged children. I have lived in the city of Waterloo since attending the University of Waterloo many years ago. I enjoy interacting with individuals in numerous settings and I am not afraid to share a smile or a heartfelt laugh with individuals I meet. My hobbies include reading and writing, exercising, but I especially enjoy cooking and decorating. In my spare time I love to explore the city; after many years I still get away with surprising myself whenever I challenge myself to try something new and different. I am in the human services line of work, and I am confident that you would feel just at home with me and in my home. I look forward to hosting you and hope that Waterloo will inspire you in ways beyond your imagination to keep you wanting to visit again :)
