I'm a frequent traveler who loves adventure. I enjoy discovering new places and returning to old, familiar places. I've been a guest of numerous Airbnb hosts and have had some awesome experiences. Airbnb is a great way to find unique housing at affordable prices, and to meet some nice people along the way. I also enjoy hosting guests in my home.
I'm a retired high school Spanish teacher (se habla español) and I have a part-time job just for the fun of it in the local tourism industry. I love Asheville and Western North Carolina and can give enthusiastic recommendations for activities in the area.
I have experience organizing tours both domestically and internationally. I may be able to get discounts for my guests for area attractions that are better than you could find on your own. Chat with me about the Biltmore Estate and the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad before you buy your tickets.
