I'm an American who has lived in Belgium for 16 years and worked as a journalist for many years before switching to public relations. I speak German, French and Italian in addition to English.
I'm into tennis, mountain biking (My apartment is across the street from a Belgian national forest called the Foret des Soignes), movies (science fiction!), theater (tragedies), music, travel and cooking, among other things.
I've traveled a lot and often (email hidden). Long ago I also benefitted from the hospitality of others as an exchange student. I'd always thought about running a B&B in retirement, then found out about airbnb and thought, Why wait? I have a big place because I need space for my two boys when they visit on weekends (I'm divorced) but the space is wasted if it's not appreciated, and I don't like to waste. ;-)
