I have travelled all over, and have been fortunate to stay at people's homes all around Finland, Ireland, New Zealand, in Krakow, Tel Aviv, London, Paris, Granada, and across North America. These experiences win head and shoulders over any stay in the poshest hotels. I love meeting people who are exploring new places. I am enthusiastic about my neighborhood and look forward to sharing my favorite places and useful tips with you. Our house enjoys a retrieving dog resident but she will not be in your way. Until a month ago, there was a cat here, so if you are highly sensitive to cat hair, there could be a problem. We also enjoy a completely smoke-free property. I like to cook and bake. And eat.
