Ola ! Tudo bem ! I am Abbie, a Canadian woman, originally a Montrealer, who just retired after a 33 year career with the Canada's foreign service, and Trade Commissioner Service. Blessed with fascinating & rich postings in Sao Paulo, Brasil ; Den Haag, Netherlands ; Mumbai, India ; Boston, New York: Kyiv, Ukraine, and again Sao Paulo !
Now time for more relaxed cultural and human travel, and going back to interests that fell by the wayside during a hectic career - painting, classical guitar, textile art, writing - politics, business and creative - nature, cycling, horse riding - and especially more fun with family and friends. Just curiosity on a daily basis. Really excellent. Oh yes - BIG animal lover - have a little rescue dog Bonnie from Brasil. We both speak Portuguese, and I a few other languages thanks to a gypsy life.
( * ENG, FR, PORT fluent - some UKR, SP, Dutch - Latin cuz of my Mom ! )
Am very independent, resourceful, easy -going - and a good and respectful guest. Having rented my own Ottawa home out while overseas I know how important this is. Trust this helps fellow air bnb'ers get a sense of who I am. Delighted to join the org.
