I am a creative, curious and laid back woman who loves traveling the world, making art, learning languages, cooking ethnic foods, discovering new music, new books, new ideas and meeting new people.
I have a small painting studio in the house and also work with mosaic.
When I travel which is usually 2 to 3 times a year, I want an experience that is up close and personal. I want to get a feeling for the place and that is usually found by meeting and hanging with the locals. Three years ago while on a trip to Japan, I discovered Airbnb. The experience was so wonderful I became a host myself so I could offer visitors a more personal alternative than a hotel stay.
As a host I have a very relaxed attitude. I want guests to be comfortable, to feel safe and to feel at home. I hope my Super Host status says I am doing it right!
