I'm from Oakland CA, enjoy cycling, hiking, traveling, regional cuisines. After over thirty years in the adventure travel business, and my wife Edie's career in financial services we have become inveterate travelers. We explore new destinations, visit our children and grandchildren in places as different as New England, Los Angeles and Tanzania, and travel to our non-profit board meetings in New York, Colorado, D.C., and Connecticut. When not using Airbnb, we often use (website hidden) and meet a variety of interesting families from around the world who use our home while we enjoy theirs. If we have any general guidelines to how we live they are: have curiosity for the world around us, and maintain generosity of spirit.
