Semi-retired. Work as a faculty member at Portland State University (Oregon, USA). Live in a rural area called the Columbia River Gorge. Have lived and worked in San Francisco, Washington, DC and New York City. Travelled to Europe many times. Also have visited East Asia to include the Russian Far East several times. Oregon is green and sustainable---nice place to be from. Want to look around at first where-ever I am and soak up the culture. I love both outdoors (live on a small farm) and indoors and most sports--though more a participant than a viewer. I am neat, organized and basically quite domestic--so no worries for the host.Leave no trace and better than when I arrived! I have used Airbnb 3 times with good success and intend to continue as I travel.
