I live in Santa Cruz, California which is a small coastal town south of San Francisco.
I love art, music, travel, exercise, cooking, eating. I'm a busy working mom, but when I have a few minutes free, and I'm able to do something completely non-domestic, like practice my guitar, it's been a good day.
My style of traveling is to explore on foot, and maybe plan a few things before hand when my travel is short. I love eating local food and chatting with folks to learn about their culture.
One of my most memorable travel experiences was to Yokohama and Tokyo. I will never forget the beauty of the temples and gardens, the very kind people, the busy (sometimes disorienting) subways, noodle shops, etc.
I think that you will find that I'm very respectful, friendly, and the easy-going California type.
