I am a Director of a Teaching Centre at a university in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I'm married to Garth (the original guy!), a semi-retired financial advisor. We are the grateful parents of two daughters and five wonderful grandsons. I enjoy travel and especially city activities (museums, art galleries, theatre, etc) but I also enjoy the outdoors, especially my two wheeler and off-road biking. My sister and I are embarking on our second annual "Twisted Sisters Tour". Last year we went to Washington, DC during election week - for two political junkies, it was heaven, and so much fun we decided to take a trip together every year. This year, its NYC - on both our bucket lists so we're pretty excited to be planning this. I've never used airbnb before so I'm hoping for a good experience. I will retire next year and Garth and I will travel to Europe and Asia - so this site should open up many locations and accommodation options for us. But, one adventure at a time - and I'm very excited that its NYC in November.
