I am an artist / curator based in Lake Country (also known as Winfield), which is located halfway between Vernon and Kelowna BC, in the heart of the Okanagan valley. Travel for me is predominately about the people I meet / visit. I love going somewhere and learning about what to see and do from the people who live there. If I'm somewhere for a longer period of time, I like kind of 'pretending' to live somewhere - buying groceries, doing errands, etc. As as guest, I work to establish clear expectations with my host - how are we arranging entry / keys? What is your schedule like? What is mine like? When I plan to leave. I also work to keep my belongings to themselves and not infringe on common spaces too much. I am a friendly and outgoing person who has no trouble with new people and new situations. When staying with someone, I'm often a bit quieter once back where I'm staying, especially at night, as I've likely been running all over the place taking in all the sites.
