Hi! My name is Dorene and I moved to Chicago from Cleveland 10 months ago, and am loving it here! I enjoy travelling, music, cinema, long walks, animals, nature, languages, cultures, reading, photography, art, comedy, spoiling my nieces and nephew, darts, trivia games, staying fit, exploring Chicago, meals out, browsing online, the Chicago Bulls and Blackhawks, The Big Bang Theory, La Furia Roja....oh yes, and tea. Must have tea! I dislike bad drivers, spiders (well, any kind of creepy-crawlies!), never-ending Chicago winters. bad grammar and the scent of skunk in the air! ;-)

My favorite places thus far are Madrid, Paris, Salzburg, London, Seville, Venice, San Francisco, NYC and, of course, Chicago. Am dying to see Prague, Vienna, Dublin, Quebec, Montreal, Machu Picchu, Buenos Aires, Patagonia, Budapest, Warsaw, Tokyo...just to name a few!

While here, if you want to chat, no problem! If you prefer to be left alone, that's fine too! I'm easy to get along with, helpful and flexible. I am a bit of a "neat freak", though, but at least you'll know my place will be clean!

If you would like to stay at my place, please have something about yourself in your profile, a photo and tell me why you are visiting Chicago. I would probably say that if you plan to come here to "party" all night long, keep on looking. I am "old" and need my sleep! ;-) If you want a "romantic weekend" with your honey-bunny, um, I sleep mere feet away from you. Granted there is a wall, but it's not "that" thick! (*Disclaimer based on experience*)

Currently, I am job hunting (unemployed) so will be home often, sending out resumes/CV's. I do need some peace and quiet, so please consider this before requesting to book. If you know of a good job opportunity for me (teaching or otherwise), please get in touch!) Unfortunately, I must move, as I have no income at this time, so I will only be accepting reservation through late August. :-(
