I am a traveler who likes to get a taste of what life is like for residents, to learn what the culture of a place is and not just go to the usual tourist spots. I have been to Vietnam to stay with relatives twice and plan on seeing more of the world in the future; Hawaii, New Zealand and Ireland top the list.
I love plants and have a degree in Ecology so most of my pictures are of bugs and flowers! I am also a bookworm and love mysteries, scifi/fanatasy and historical fictions.
I travel with my boyfriend of five years who loves ocean life, our cats and sports and happily lets me plan the trip while he enjoys the results and gets us from A to B. We plan on seeing a bit more of the world before settling down for a few years, but want to show our (one day) kids the world too, so I'm sure we will continue exploring.
We both treat any place we stay as if it were our home: in a respectful manner.
