Once again, Thank You and enjoy your stay!
I love Southern California for its weather, its diverse cultures and for the many activities that are found throughout the area. Traveling and adventuring is my passion. I’ve been excited to be able to travel to some of the most remote parts of the world including seeing the blue footed boobies of the Galapagos, standing before Great Buddha in Kyoto and seeing the tiny penguins of Torres del Paine on the southernmost tip of South America. I love meeting people from around the world and getting to experience different cultures and languages – I’ve become quite good at interspersing my speech with lots of hand gesturing to communicate! There is much on my list still to see – I’m hoping to get to Brazil one day and do some cycling in Laos. Until then, I’m fortunate to be in a business I love where the travelers and their stories come to me.
