About the Host, Sandra
We are a family of passionate travelers and enjoy everything from international big city adventures to skiing in the mountains or camping in the woods. We have traveled frequently with our "boys" (now 23and 28) so you may find one or both of them joining us on an adventure. We are also a family of musicians -- three opera singers and a cellist -- so often travel to see performances. We are accustomed to exploring with little assistance so are low maintenance guests.
We have been hosts since fall 2013 and have enjoyed our guests from around the world. Our "puppy" Puccini love the extra attention of our many guests.
