From Denver, actually Littleton just south of Denver on the Light Rail line. I'm (by avocation) an historian of printing and papermoney. During the day, I taught until retirement Calculus and Macroeconomcs---several teaching awards, including the Governor's...All that said, I am a beach person at heart (the Jersey Shore) and I puzzle why I have lived so long in the Colorado Rockies---closest beach 638 miles away, in California! I am originally from Northern New Jersey and attended St. Peter's Prep in Jersey City and spent over 65 summers at the beach in Ocean Grove, New Jersey, USA... My Colorado skiing friends are incredulous when I say that I'd give up all of the Rockies for just a 100 yards of the Jersey Shore.....I lived in England for 10 years, teaching at The University of Leeds, and am well travelled, have been, for example, to most of Europe, Morocco, Turkey, Viet Nam, Cambodia, New Zealand, Australia, Iceland, Samoa, etc., etc. My daughter introduced me to airbnb---how smart her millennial generation is!---and I have so far stayed at airbnbs in Hawaii, Iceland (twice), Florida, Santa Fe (New Mexico), Jersey City (New Jersey, twice), and San Francisco. My next airbnb stays will be in Kauai (Hawaii) and Singapore.
I'll soon be staying at airbnbs in San Francisco, Maui, and Singapore...I travel a lot.
My Best, Richard
P.S. Just back from a terrific stay at Jason's place in Santa Fe---If you haven't been there, it's a bucket list "must do".
