I've spent most of the last ten years working with refugees but recently returned to school. I'm hoping to earn my PhD in Political Science some time before I reach retirement age. I love to travel, see new places and meet new people.
When I travel on holiday, I like to read fiction, poetry, essays... anything that isn't political science! I love live performance of any kind - music, theatre, dance. When I travel, I don't try to see everything on everyone's list. I just take things day by day and often end up spending a fair amount of time on a park bench, in a cafe (email hidden) reading and writing.
I am very independent, so I don't expect hosts to become my new best friend or personal tour guide. That said, I am almost always happy to get a drink or grab a bite with a new friend in a new place. Just know, that I am low-key and don't expect anything more than the keys. If we connect and you feel like showing me your favorite place, just ask. Chances are pretty good I'll say yes.
