I'm a quiet, rather private single woman of a certain age. I love to travel and have had the blessing in the last few years to visit many places in the world. This year (2014) I will visit Denmark, Sweden and Russia on a two-week cruise after staying in an AirBnB in London for a few days. I am both a host and a user of AirBNB services and have had nothing but good experiences to report. I don't smoke or drink and I love having great times with good friends, listening to an eclectic assortment of music, books and podcasts on my iPod and spending quality time with my dog Lily. I love living on the North Coast of California tucked away in the Redwoods near the crashing, ever-changing Pacific Ocean. Nature, music, doing volunteer and service work along with good friends feeds my soul. I live one day at a time, gratefully.
