Travel and photography are two of my greatest passions. I love researching new destinations and planning trips. It also gives me an opportunity to spend time on my photography and capture all of those experiences. Hiking in South America has been one of the highlights of my travels and I really enjoyed cycling and kayaking the beautiful, laid-back island of Kauai. I also love to read, everything from literature to travel writing to books about the financial crisis. And I'm a very respectful person and believe strongly in respect for yourself and for others, so I promise to take care of your home.
