I enjoy travel in U.S.A. and abroad, solo and with family, friends or groups. I have stayed in AirBNB in U.S.A. and abroad and always had a good experience. Looking to give back to the travel experience by sharing my home.
During your stay
I have enjoyed staying in AirBnB and want to give back the experience in my hometown. I work during the day but you will have Keyless entrance. I will answer questions and interact as much or as little as you need. Bring your bike this summer and I will ride the trails with you.
