I am a 36-year old woman who is looking to explore the world, one living room at a time, mostly with my amazing boyfriend! I am a Jr. High Special Education teacher in the Phoenix area. I am also a mother of 3 children, ages 16, 11, and 5. Can you think of anyone more in need of a vacation?!?
In my free time (what is that?!) I enjoy baking, reading (usually locked in the bathroom), crafting, walking, watching movies, or just visiting with friends. I don't watch much TV other than Glee and Raising Hope. Movies are more my thing, and I'm not that picky. I'll watch just about anything once! My perfect day would be reading a book on a blanket under a tree or at the beach with drink in hand (beer, wine, lemonade, coffee). Reading On the Road got me curious about San Francisco. I am currently reading the original scroll version. Don't worry- I'm not as crazy as Jack! :
Given that I have three kids to take care of on a teacher's salary, I don't have a lot of spare cash for traveling; however, I am making it a new priority to take more vacations, which is why I am excited about discovering this site! My traveling in the past has been mostly limited to visiting my family in Michigan and local day trips. I love those trips, but I am interested in broadening my destinations! I enjoy the typical tourist attractions, but I also like to stop into a local bar or pub off the beaten path for a pint! When I travel I like to find the least expensive way to do as much as I can. I don't require luxury accommodations with room service, just a clean bed and shower.
Overall, I am a low-maintenance person with a sense of adventure who is looking to build memories!
