My love for travel began almost 30 years ago when I lived in Brazil for a year as an exchange student after graduating high school/before starting college. I speak a very rusty version of Portuguese and taught ESL for years in the Washington, D.C. area, meeting wonderful people from all parts of the globe. I've traveled to France, Argentina, Paraguay, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and throughout the northeast, midwest, south and western states of the U.S. as well as Puerto Rico and I absolutely love exploring new places and meeting new people. I truly believe Airbnb is an awesome way to see and experience the world and to build connections with others. Professionally, we are real estate investors and also love seeing new markets, meeting other investors and exploring potential opportunities for our company. We love to travel as a family, a couple and on solo ventures. Our travel interests include exploring local restaurants, wineries & breweries, walkable cities, bike trails, hiking, nature/being by water, art, antiquing and shopping and of course just relaxing! We have a 2.5 year old Goldendoodle "son" , Samson, who also travels with us on some trips too. We love being hosts as well as guests through Airbnb and expanded our circle of friends through our experiences here. I look forward to meeting you at some point along our travel journey!
