I am a teacher from San Diego, California. I am married with two grown children. I am respectful and non-smoking. I love reading, gardening, art, music and, of course, traveling.
I have lived in Italy, Australia, New Zealand, and have traveled in the South Pacific, Indonesia, North Africa and Western Europe. My Airbnb stays in Europe and the US have been great and I am looking forward to visiting Portugal this fall. Sometimes I travel with my family, sometimes with friends or solo.
I enjoy staying in Airbnb apartments and homes--rather than in hotels--because it allows one to "feel a bit like a local" and gives a chance to explore neighborhoods. I enjoy the flexibility and freedom of not having to be on a schedule when traveling. It's always fun to be spontaneous once one is settled in a destination.
