I love nature, travel, birding, learning about other cultures, bicycling, scuba diving, photography, drawing and design. I like to cook (I'm vegetarian) on occasion and share it with family and friends. I prefer to travel slowly. I've been through out Asia, Australia, Caribbean, Mexico and Central America and always for 4 to 6 months at a time, sometimes longer. You'll find me friendly, engaging and respectful as a guest. I'm an early riser, and l like to get out early to enjoy the day.
