At present, I am (mostly) an armchair traveler, looking to do more REAL traveling. My older children are leaving "the nest", and I have a (quiet but friendly, and ALWAYS respectful) young teen who'll often be my traveling companion.
I am an avid reader of EVERYTHING, but mostly current fiction. Favorite authors include: John Irving, Annie Lamott, Bill Bryson ("A Walk In The Woods"), Anna Quindlen. As an elementary school Librarian, I read a lot of juvenile fiction as well. I enjoy hiking, bird-watching, swimming, and sailing (El Toro, mostly). I like movies, live theater and art.
I would describe myself as friendly, relaxed, and flexible. I'm definitely more comfortable in blue-jeans and tennis shoes, but I like to "get fancy" when the occasion dictates.
I am extremely neat and clean, and considerate of others. I think I'm an ideal guest. I hope you'll agree.
