Most Memorable Travel Experience
Honeymoon in Santorini Greece, and spending three days/two nights at the Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi Sweden, Driving Scotland for 8 days, and the Las Vegas 2015/16 NYE TravBuddy Meet-Up!
I'm very easy going and laid back. I can have just as much fun hanging out at home, as I can going out to a club or bar with friends or family. I'm honest, generous to a fault, trusting, love meeting new people and making new friends, and according to my vouches some people think I'm funny :)
I'm happily married to my best friend & soul mate Lena, who is Swedish, but she also has a US citizenship. We've lived together since 1999 and been married since 2007 :)
I enjoy going to the beach, hiking trails through the woods, or a stroll through the city. I'm more a 4 star hotel kind of person than a hostel or camping person, but I use to go camping a lot.
I'm a listener more than a talker, so I'm not very good at holding a conversation, but when I get comfortable, watch out :)
I'm a morning person and wake early even on my days off. I love cooking, especially fixing a big breakfast for myself and guest, but don't have to if you're more the juice, coffee & toast kind of person.
I don't smoke, but use to when I was much younger and thought it was cool.
We live close to, and I work in Washington DC, so we are always happy to show guest around the city!
You can also find me on Face Book at if you want to friend me there too.
