I am a media producer of 20 years, running a successful business in the New Hampshire Seacoast where I have been located my entire life thus far. My World revolves around good food, great friends, and an eclectic, yet wonderful family.
My time is invested in my business and home. Service to my clients is important, no matter how small the task and I look for the same from those who I do business with. Attention to detail is important to me and I enjoy showing my appreciation to those who go above and beyond for the little things in life: Anything worth doing, is worth doing right.
When traveling, I enjoy stepping out of my element and into an experience. My travel arrangements take days and I rarely make quick decisions to book my amenities. Research and reviews make the difference between a great experience and a lousy one. I love 5 star resorts, but it's not the only way to enjoy time away from home. A friend's place can be as cozy as the most quaint bed and breakfast and as swank as the Four Seasons. It's a matter of effort to make a stay hospitable, clean, and if done with a smile usually the rest falls into place.
As a traveler, I travel light - or as light as possible. I like the challenge of living out of a suit case rather than unpacking and the most noise I ever make is what comes from the television. I am private and like my privacy - a shared home situation is not my cup of tea. I rarely cook when traveling as it's part of the excitement to explore and experience the culinary cultivations surrounding me. I usually pass on breakfast (unless it's French toast) and I'm not a coffee drinker - if you have an espresso machine, you'll put a big smile on my face :o)
I don't smoke, I have no pets, and I've never been an extrovert to the point I could make 20 friends in a night and "invite them all back to my place." If I'm in your town, then I'm not spending the day in your house - I have places to go, things to do, and sights to see. I appreciate a comfortable bed and a nice fluffy pillow to end my night and start my day.
I have respect and give it out like candy to those who earn it. Should a problem arise I will tell you about it and not days later on a review post. We are adults and we both want the same results from our relationship together. I am your guest and respect goes both ways. I respect my house and understand what it takes to make it a home. I would expect no less if you came to stay at mine.
We are strangers to each other, but the trust is communal. Clearly layout the rules, make we feel welcomed and we should do great together. I look forward to being invited into your home.
