I'm a person with little time to get away from work. I appreciate the use of an interesting and relaxing place to escape, if only for a couple of days. Hiking, gardening, reading and sleeping are some of my favorite activities! I'm an easy traveler, preferring a light load and a nice music selection and great kitchen a plus!
