I am a very recently retired special education teacher with a love of music, dancing, hiking, and spirituality. I love to travel; favorite destinations have been trekking in Nepal and New Zealand and exploring the USA by traveling cross country. I am married to a wonderful man; while we do some traveling together, I also enjoy traveling with my women friends. I am comfortable traveling low-budget and enjoy remote areas as well as experiencing cities and music festivals. My other passions are playing jazz/blues piano in my free time, experimenting with local culinary delights, reading, and visiting areas which enhance my own spiritual growth. As a guest, my main needs are to have a relatively quiet environment which is clean. In return, I am very aware of others' need for quiet and respect this. I also believe in maintaining a clean space and leaving it as I found it.
