Hi! I am an easygoing guest, friendly and respectful. I love traveling, both internationally and within the U.S. Some of my favorite trips have been to Sicily, Israel, Kenya, New Orleans, Austin, and New York (where I used to live for several years). I also love movies, books, art, beer, good food of all sorts, and interesting conversations. I'm always interested in learning about the best destinations within any given locale - sites off the beaten track.
