I'm a travel and language fan, constantly working on my languages (native English, fluent French, pretty good Italian and Spanish and horrible German). Because I work over the internet, I can live where ever I want. So while I own my own home in my native San Francisco, California, it is currently rented to someone else while I live in Europe. I change countries every few months, but mainly stay in Germany, Italy and France. I'm sort of a professional of vacation rentals, having now lived in them for nearly 4 years total. I travel with my assistance dog, which is the equivalent in training to a guide dog. He's also a professional traveler, and helps me make friends where ever I go!
