The two things I could not live without are physical activity and travel. I teach fitness: Pilates, yoga, personal training, and I dance. When I am not traveling, I am planning my next trip, and very often my work goes with me. I have been very fortunate to teach in Italy, Finland, and Argentina.
I am from Finland, but have been living in Washington, D.C. for a long time. As most Finns, I am very practical, organized, and efficient, and an easy guest - not whiny at all. If needed, I can also provide references from previous hosts.
