Lived in Sydney in 2006; want to take bike trips in Vietnam, Thailand, Sicily and.....before I die. Favorite destinations? There are so many: Costa Rica, Paris, Amsterdam, New Zealand, Yucatan, Fraser Island.
I am a Foucault obsessed academic living in Southern Vermont with my partner, son, and two barn cats (no cats indoors please!)
I am the sort of guest who comes in and offers to cook a meal (Moroccan? Persian?), mop the floor, do the dishes, leave the place cleaner than when I left. Can't help myself. Love to stay in a residential dwelling rather than a hotel, make my own breakfast some of the time, just be in the place, but also find the very best ethnic cuisine on offer when I am visiting a city.
No life motto--just live gently and with integrity. It's not always easy!
