I have travelled extensively and enjoy the sense of adventure + learning about other cultures. I travel with my spouse, with my friends and solo. I am low maintenance - good at rolling with the punches and enjoy understanding a culture from the inside out. We have rented out rooms in our house in the past so I know how to be a good, respectful tenant. I work in management for a financial cooperative where I have been for more than 20 years. (geez, really?) I like touring the area, checking out the museums, monuments, trying the local cuisine and I think most things go better with a glass of wine. I am especially fond of walking tours and always seek those out on vacation. As an avid reader, I love to read the local papers as it helps me to get a better perspective.
