Hello! I'm a software executive who has lived all over the US and traveled the world. Usually, my travels are work-related, so I always try to fit in a few days of fun to live like a local, or if possible, forego the typical business hotel altogether for a home. Plus, I love hosting people in my own home, as it gives me the welcomed chance to exercise my innate Southern hospitality. Despite my love of travel, adventure, exploring...I still haven't mastered the art of packing appropriately for any trip, but luckily, I have mastered how to fit it all in one (very heavy) bag. My motto: life is too short for vacations...if you keeping going back to the same place because you love it, move.
