When traveling, I seek vacation rentals that make it possible to get outdoors into nature easily. I like to return to the same places many times to get to know them. Love taking good care of the spaces I visit....it's important to me that they're clean, well-maintained and pretty. I help keep them that way. Often I travel with one dog -- a 30# Aussie named Cinder who's been in training since I brought her home as a puppy. She's kind, has a good sense of humor and is ridiculously well-mannered and obedient....and smart.
