Hi. I am a female business professional from N Calif (San Jose). I live in California primarily but, also live and commute frequently to Honolulu (where I was born and raised) throughout the year. I have traveled extensively for work and pleasure. Been to at least half of the 50 states. I have also done some overseas travel...Thailand, China, Japan, Korea, Russia, England, France, Italy, Scandinavia, and Australia. I love new experiences and encounters with people. Cultural nuances always fascinate me and I look for them wherever I go. Yet, it's finding those things we have in common that really bind us no matter where in the world we live...with much "Aloha" I am happy to open my Honolulu home (whether I am "on island" or elsewhere) to all intrepid travelers.
