I live in the Great White North (Canada), but this winter I'll spend in SE Asia. I'm an independent business owner, and my consulting practice --mainly with humanitarian organizations-- takes me all over the world. I've worked in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese, and study several other languages. I'm a foodie and love learning to cook local dishes, love learning experiences generally (learning to weave, animal care, languages, art, etc, etc), and exploring both urban and rural areas.
Pretty flexible with all kinds of arrangements, but cleanliness, an excellent internet connection for work, and nighttime quiet for deep sleeping are very important.
