I am a middle school art teacher. I enjoy huge urban centres as well as the jungle and beach. I cannot exist with out music, art, interesting people, and dancing. Fave book: Middlesex. Last 3 songs played on my ipod: "You" TV on the Radio, "Cry to Me" Betty Wright, "Fire"Pointer Sisters.
Hosts can be either "in" or "out" of the picture depending on the individual's style. I am pretty easy. Of course, should the water shut off I would like someone reliable to contact. As a guest I am tidy, responsible and try to treat other folks' place better than I would treat my own.
This past year I visited Montreal, Detroit and spent the summer in Costa Rica.
I don't care much for hotels and really enjoy the opportunity to see the places where people actually "live" in the places I visit. My travel motto is " Ideally, I like to be in a place long enough to be a little bored".
