I sometimes travel with my husband John, a University of California systems analyst. We're considerate, communicative, tidy (well--I'm tidy at least!), rather quiet, and we travel to enjoy family and friends, historic buildings, birds, good food and drink, and women's basketball (yes, we'll go see the Seattle Storm during this trip). I also use Airbnb when traveling to Brooklyn and London.
As for the five things I can't live without: good biographies and mysteries, walking, cafe au lait morning and afternoon, my daughter, and anything containing pesto or dark chocolate. Favorite travel destinations are Brooklyn and Britain, and I'd like to see Alaska and New Zealand while the wildlife there still exists in abundance.
