Hello, I have had a desire to travel from as far back as I can remember. I recall growing up as a young man and thinking that with such a beautiful world at my doorstep, it would be a shame not to see as much of it as possible before I die. And that I have done! In 1997 I created a website and bartered my way across Europe for 5 consecutive summers. But what I never expected was that in addition to seeing and experiencing so many wonderful places and things, it would be the people I would meet along my journey and the ensuing friendships that I would value the most.
When asked, most of those who know me well would say that I'm a fairly easy going individual with a diverse range of interests. I try to live a healthy lifestyle, eating well and exercising at least 5 days a week. I love to cook, take long drives (and walks), enjoy a good movie now and then, and play a game of chess now and then.
As for what it would be like to have me as a guest I will say that I can easily adapt to most personality types. I can be respectful of others privacy and sense of quiet, but can just as easily be entertaining and engaging. I enjoy stimulating conversation and am respectful of opinions and/or beliefs that are not the same as my own.
When I find myself being a guest in another's home I really try to treat it as if it were my own residence. I always try to be polite, cordial, and friendly. ;-)
