I am a middle aged educator with three grown children and a new husband as of Valentines Day 2013. I love to travel - to learn more about different cultures and history but also for outdoor adventures. I love hiking, non-whitewater kayaking, caving, biking, etc. I prefer staying in places that allow me to experience more of the local atmosphere - and not spend a fortune. But I do want nice walking near by if possible and expect clean, welcoming accommodations. I've used VRBO and Home Away so am now trying Airbnb.
