Hello fellow travelers! I look forward to meeting you and having you relax in my lovely, comfortable town home. A little about me.....I am Canadian and have lived here in the Seattle area for the past 13 years. I so enjoy this area for its art, entertainment, food (the most fabulous restaurants!) and of course the incredible outdoors here in the Pacific Northwest. I absolutely love that it stays green here all year long. Guess that's why they call it the Emerald City... I really notice it after I return from traveling & flying back into the city, it's just so green!! I live within a 10 minute walk of Lake Washington & of course the ocean is not far away.
This area also has quite a stable economy as it is headquarters for a number of well known companies such as Microsoft, Starbucks, Tullys Coffee, Amazon, Boeing, Google and so many others....
My background is in interior design and have worked in corporate interiors for many years. I've been in real estate for the past 10 years and really enjoy helping my clients not only with the selling and buying of their homes but also helping with design ideas for their new residences or investment properties.
But my love is art...I started oil painting about 5 years ago. Although still a novice, I so enjoy working with the paints and exploring what can be created. I am currently in the process of constructing a small art studio in my home & can't wait until I have a space dedicated to the creative process.
I also like to read, particularly autobiographies as I find it fascinating how others have lived their lives, the challenges they have faced and how they have handled their life experiences. I guess that might explain my love of foreign films as well. I enjoy taking an (armchair) trip to see other places around the world through film, when I am unable to travel in person.
I do love to travel when I can and have been to a number of countries around the world such as Africa, Italy, Czech Republic, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, England, Mexico. My next trip may be to India and I also want to visit Greece and Turkey among many other destinations.
I love to host as I know what I like when traveling and I hope that I can provide that hospitality and comfort to guests who travel here. I look forward to meeting you and to assist in making your travel here to the Pacific Northwest a comfortable and pleasing experience.
With Warmest Regards,
Barb
