I work to travel. Developing countries are my favorite. When I go, I prefer to live day-to-day as much like a local as is possible. I usually travel alone, but more recently have been traveling with friends. I like to meet new people and discover new places. As a guest, I'm very respectful of space and try to be as unobtrusive as possible. As a host, I really enjoy showing people places that I know or recommending places that I know. English and Spanish speaking and love to learn about other peoples' language. I'm a big music fan and enjoy a craft beer or a fine meal--on the street or in a fine restaurant. I seldom cook at home.
