Single, retired economist/policy advisor, now catching up on travel ... Paris, Venice, Rome, Istanbul, St. Petersburg, Madrid, Lisbon and Havana. This year, Washington, London and Burgundy are on my list. When not travelling, I keep busy with DIY projects around the house. Friends say I'm a bit of a perfectionist about some of these things, but certainly not a Type A personality. When not working on a project, I like to have friends over. And when I just want some down time, I like to read ... or just snooze. Attention potential AirB&B hosts: I'm sociable, considerate, responsible, self-sufficient and tidy.
