I'm an American living in Manchester, UK. I work in human rights, I speak Spanish and some Portuguese, and I love travel, cats, books, and knitting. My husband and I have a long list of places we'd like to visit. When I'm traveling for pleasure, I prefer to see fewer places but see them more in-depth and really experience them. Whether I'm traveling for business or pleasure, I appreciate having a clean, quiet space to come back to and rest up for the next busy day. I am a respectful guest, and I always try to leave a place in at least as good condition as I found it in.
