Arrived in Montpelier VT six years ago and love being in a small but vibrant town after too much traffic in my life! In fact, I am a real town booster. Anyone who stays with me will have good information available about a wide variety of things to do and places to go to get the most out of your stay (but I am also happy to leave you alone with your exploring!). I am closing down a long career in social work and public health policy, looking forward to more travel (partial to Indian Ocean beaches). I love art museums as well as kayaking and gardening, snowshoeing and making baskets. Usually early to bed, early to rise. Can't live without that first cup of coffee!
