I'm an ex-hippie, mother of 2 very unique individuals, love the feel of a good book in my hands and a hot cup of tea beside me. But, I also believe in adventure rather than stagnation and broadening my mind rather than narrowing it. Experimentation was my word for 2011. The word for 2012 is exploration, so this year I plan on traveling all over Ireland and the UK, with side trips to Denmark , The Netherlands and Belgium. I want to see other countries and people the way they actually are - not just the touristy things, so Airbnb feels perfect for me.
