I am a foody and I stay active so I can enjoy eating. I work out most days and ride my bike everywhere. I shop at the local farmer's market and my partner and I like to cook up a storm. I like architecture, green technology, trains, history, fragrant flowers and nature. I enjoy moderate libations.
Shows: Downton Abbey, Madmen, True Blood, Walking Dead, Treme, The Event, Big Love, Hung, Foyles War.
When I use airbnb it is usually because I want to have a home base including to cook some of the time, or to come back for a nap and rest; I learn a lot about a culture when I go to its markets and buy what is fresh and make a meal. Its nice to have a host who is available for directions to local markets, restaurants, must see sights and to share a glass of wine. I am clean and like keeping my space picked up and organized.
