I am a High School Social Studies Teacher who loves travel, history, art, reading, photography, and learning about other cultures! I have lived in Argentina and France for different periods in my life and traveled around other parts of Europe and South America. I speak decent Spanish, and I took Italian in college but have gotten rusty. In 2012 my mother and I traveled around Europe using AirBnb and I got hooked! Unfortunately all my positive reviews from those trips are attached to her account but I'm working on getting them linked to my own. We are both respectful, responsible, trustworthy, polite, fun-loving social people who love to make new friends and try new food :) We are very open-minded, forward thinking people who love learning and good conversation. I am extremely planning oriented, so I am prompt with communications and highly organized when I travel. I have a little yorkie terrier named Odin. We are non-smokers, and though we enjoy a craft beer or glass of wine, we have out grow our party animal days so you won't have to worry about us stumbling in at 4am!
