I grew up in San Francisco. Interest include: camping, traveling and reading.
If I had to pick between a tropical beach vacation and skiing, I would pick the BEACH. Hands down, every time.
I am a working photographer (So yes, I have been closely analyzing your profile photos for white balance and proper exposure) And if you took the last sentence seriously, then we probably wouldn't get along.
I mainly do two types of traveling. Family OR Mommy Needs a Vacation. It will be evident which type I am doing, by the Number of Guests I have listed in my reservation. Regardless of type, I don't generally do a lot of cooking while on vacation.
I'd like to think of myself as easy going and self sufficient. I try to do adequate research before arriving at a destination so that I don't bug the host too much. So if you are up for chatting or sharing some wine - I'm in. If you like your guests to leave as quietly as they came, I'm cool with that too.
The only two things I am a bit fussy about are clean bathrooms and a comfy bed.
I prefer a plush pillow top bed. I get really excited when I stay at a W Hotel. For those of you who have slept on a W Bed, you know what I am talking about! So if you have a hard bed, please mention it so I can make an informed decision before booking.
