Hey, I’m Jim!

Wellington, New Zealand · Member since May 2011

Vicky and I clock quite a few days on the road..leisure travel..staying in quite a few airbnb places along the way. It is our preferred accommodation.
We consider ourselves your house guest, not customer. We're quite simply friends you haven't met yet.
We don't smoke or drink; are tidy and respectful of any living space we are in; and..we think of ourselves as easy, fairly outgoing people.
Here are some individual sketches. I'm early to bed and to (URL HIDDEN) American citizen and NZ resident. I retired early from the work (URL HIDDEN) 1999..and now make my way in the world via laptop. I was a journalist, loosely defined, working in print, radio, local and network news. I retired from the 'real world' at age 44. I am now 60.
Vicky is a born and bred Kiwi, a mother of four, grandmother of four and a part-time NZ nanny. She continues to amaze family, friends, and little kids with her outgoing, loving nature.
