About the Host, Breeda
In the late 90’s whilst living in New York City I went on my first hiking tour with Carol & Dick of Timberline Tours into the Grand Canyon. What an amazing experience and also the beginning of a long journey home to Ireland. At the time I was working in the computer industry as a project manager in the IT department of a large law firm in the Wall Street area (now that's a mouthful). One of the partners asked if I would be checking my messages whilst on holiday and when I found myself looking for a phone in Phantom Ranch at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, I knew something in my life needed to change....
Around the same time I moved from Manhattan into a Brownstone garden apartment on Clinton Avenue in Brooklyn, NY., my very favorite part of New York City.
In my garden I planted flowers and came to realize some years later that I also planted the seeds to my new life...... I quit my job in early 2000. My plan was to take 3 months off work to relax and contemplate my life. At the time I had been taking weekly classes at a local yoga studio so naturally I did more yoga and then I found myself at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health where I did a yoga teacher training just so that I could do yoga every day all day for 30 days.
As a friend once said ‘one thing borrowed another’ and here I am back home in Ireland, teaching yoga, growing organic vegetables with a plan to being self sustainable.
Before returning to Ireland in 2004, I became somewhat of a gypsy traveling the United States from East to West in my Toyota Camry Wagon. I spent time in Santa Fe, NM; Sebastapol, CA; Tyringham, MA, Sedona, AZ to name but a few. What a vast magnificent country the United States of America is....
I travel back to my other home as often as time and money will allow and that is how I first found airbnb.
Whilst visiting New York in August 2012, I stayed with an airbnb host right across from my old home on Clinton Avenue. It was such a wonderful experience that I decided from now on, airbnb is the only way to travel. I do hope you will come for a visit and stay for a while.
Blessings & Love, Breeda
