After 31 years of California living, moved back to Berlin, Germany with Berliner husband and Californian cat. We were missing the seasons we grew up with in Europe. We missed being able to walk to places or ride bikes as a means of transportation rather than as a "sporting or leisure" activity.
Berlin is old and new to us at the same time, because the wall has come down since we lived here and now we live in a part of Berlin that used to be part of the East. We are discovering it by living in it.
My Italian roots takes us to Italy, and our friends from our youth and our wanderings on motorcycle and staying in youth hostels when we were younger, has us going to Belgium and England.
Europe is now our oyster, so we'll be doing lots of "airbnb".
As a guest I'm considerate, quiet, clean and have basic philosophy of treating others as I would like to be treated... and leaving a place better than I found it, but if that is not possible because it's perfect, than I "add" to it - by means of a thank you from the heart.
I'm interested in all art forms, but please don't ask me who is my favorite this or that... never been able to answer that question...
If you're lucky enough that I come with Bernd (spouse) you'll get a wonderfully cooked meal!
