Hi. I'm a retired academic (sociologist) who now teaches English as a Second Language part time at a Private Language school. Painting, writing, and reading, golfing, and dancing take up most of my time. I wish there were more hours in the day! I've done a lot of world traveling but I've found there's plenty to see right here in the USA. One of my favorite places on earth is Hawaii. My children are grown and making their own way in the world. I'm enjoying life! I travel light and am not into fancy, nor expensive living.
As a guest, I'm courteous (I clean up after myself). A friend and I just did Airbnb in Santa Cruz and loved it. A courteous host is all I expect and that's what I've encountered so far. Life motto: give and you shall receive.
