Hey y'all, I'm a girl named Mychal ( pronounced like "Michael") and I'm a bookbinder in Austin, Texas you can check out my website at iona handcrafted (website hidden) ( they won't let me actually put the web address here for some reason ? )....i love to salsa dance and roller skate ( quads, not blades ) and have adventures of all sorts! I travel for work a lot doing juried fine art shows around the US, and hate the hotel thing....i always wanna be a local! I typically travel alone so i can be flexible and spontaneous, and because i find that i meet more people when i am sola! In the last 7 years, since i've fallen in love with latin music, i have mostly been traveling to Spanish speaking countries. I usually take the early part of each year off to travel and study and/or practice my Spanish, which is still a struggle for me. I have loved all of the homes I have stayed in over the last couple of years through Airbnb and have tried to incorporate the things I have learned from all of my fabulous hosts about how to do it right ( oh, and a few things NOT to do, of course! ) And so the adventure continues!
