Originally from Maine, I live in Bakersfield, CA. I love to walk and be active. Part of my purpose of my trip to Portland is to start a Fitness Challenge in memory of my sister, working my way across the country. It will be done in parts over the course of as many years as it takes. I am a jr high history teacher, married with 3 grown sons and 5 wonderful grands plus a cute, sweet, naughty, active dog. I have never been to Oregon or Washington state even though I have been to almost 40 states and over a dozen countries. CRAZY! It's definately time to head there. My husband will have used up his vaca time, so he won't be joining me. It will be an adventure! My first leg of the Fitness Challenge (website hidden) for some annoying reason I can NOT seem to get my computer to cooperate with me so I can "complete my profile" as airbnb is requesting. It's maddening. It won't let me confirm my email address, too. So, at any rate, until I can get that solved, you can find me on (website hidden) at Laura Jacobsen Ho. I am the only one. Thanks. Viewing my(website hidden)profile will no doubt answer some of the questions below. As far as what kind of guest I will be: considerate, private if need be, social and friendly, clean, and interested in area. Favorite travel destinations: Maine, Malaysia (husband from there and I lived there for 8 years), anywhere with mountains and ocean. I also love cities. I adore walking on dirt roads. So, I guess my taste in travel destinations is eclectic. Having said all this, I am also a home body! I am a mix! My style of traveling is simple. I don't try to get a lot of site seeing packed in, I want to get a feel for a place. What's my life motto: "Live in the present, live in the now as much as possible."
