Happily married for 26+ years and the mother of three pretty incredible adult children, I have traveled extensively including studying Art History in Florence, Italy and learning to shear sheep in New Zealand while "rousy-ing" for a shearing gang (code for sweeping the remnant wool from the shearers' blade). I guess for this reason alone, I am most interested in AirBnB; it feels more real and integrated with my style of travel. Also, as a homeowner I know how to be a respectful and conscientious guest and would respect your lifestyle and preferences.
Before early retirement last Sept., I taught high school and currently invest time in neighborhood efforts building a better tomorrow for those who are less privileged. In former years I tested shoes for Nike and due to a SCUBA diving injury, have had to give up running BUT there is no place I would be unwilling to ride a bike! I am smoke and pet free but understand and am amenable to others' choices.
If you were to open your home to me (and mine), I would be respectful and promise you that I would leave your residence in better condition than when I arrived.
Thank you for your consideration.
