I currently live in Denver, Colorado and have returned to school to take prerequisites for nursing programs (which I hope to get into in January 2014!). In May 2012 I returned from living in Malawi, Africa for two and a half years working with the Peace Corps. It feels good to be back, but I definitely miss it there. In my free time from school I enjoy escaping the city life and heading up to the mountains to and relax by skiing and hiking. Outside of Colorado, I enjoy traveling to new cities any chance I get. In my creative downtime, I enjoy baking cookies and cakes, trying new vegetarian recipes, making quilts, and simply relaxing
I value having a plan while traveling but also appreciate flexibility in order to take advantage of unforeseen opportunities. I don't like to rush through experiences or cities! I will try anything once, which typically turns into more than one time :) I consider myself outgoing and love meeting new people. One of many things I appreciate about airbnb is being able to meet locals and get a "behind the scenes" ideas for places to go. I like to see more than simply the tourist attractions!
Typically I am traveling with my better half, Daniel. We enjoy laughing a lot and having a great time exploring new places and learning new things. We are both very tidy with our belongings and courteous when traveling, keeping fine consideration that we share in someone's home and treat it as our own space. We like clean spaces and typically leave a place cleaner than when we arrived!
