I read anything and everything that comes within eyesight. I inhale books and am a member of several book clubs. I also enjoying watching TV series and playing with (laughing at) my cat. I love traveling and have managed to find a way to work overseas most of my life in order to support this habit. I am currently a curriculum coordinator at an international primary school.
I'm originally from New Mexico, USA but my family now lives in Portland, Oregon. My fav travel destinations include African safari's, Zanzibar, Bali, Tung Lung Chau, New Orleans, Chaco Canyon, and White Sands.
I'm a fairly laid back traveler but am happy to take charge if needed. I love camping so something that carries over when I'm a guest in someone's home is to leave it in better condition than I found it. I generally travel light and like it to appear as if I was never there. I don't have exactly that same expectation when I'm hosting someone but I do appreciate it. I also enjoy getting to know people's stories.
