I'm a German guy who works in research and is located at the SF Bay Area for a couple of years to do so. Interest are various but traveling and exploring new places is pretty high ranked on that list. After traveling all over Europe, San Francisco used to be my top desctination. But since I live here now, I get the chance to explore the Americas a bit more and plan to do that as much as my paycheck and schedule allows for.
I'm very easy going, responsible person and as a guest in a place I treat it just like I would treat my own place. Thanks to my mum I have a bit of an OCD when it comes to clean up and keep things in good shape. Sometimes I'm annoyed by that, but usually it's a helpful habit. I curse, however, when I start ironing my shirts again, because the laundry service didn't do it right. "Thank you, mum!"
Luckily, I can control that and contain it to a level that is managable not just by me but also people around me.
