I'm from Portland, Oregon area. I work two jobs and sometimes travel for work and sometimes for play.
I love to explore new places, and I find it especially exciting to discover a great new restaurant, food or red wine while out and about. I am high energy when outside the home, but generally, I just keep to the computer or a book when home for the night.
I love to meet new friends, I like other people's dogs and cats (I have none). I enjoy learning new things, and I love to hear stories of people who have been abroad.
I do not watch television, but I do like to pick up a newspaper or magazine from time to time.
I enjoy hosts who aren't afraid to offer suggestions about where to go when I am in an unfamiliar town.
