My husband Noel and I are retired. We have three sons who are at various stages of educational/early career development: PhD program at Stanford, marketing at G@@gle, and teaching in Thailand.
Noel loves to hike and has volunteered the last two summers at Yosemite, one of his favorite places and less than 4 hours from us. He plays Latin, jazz and flamenco guitar. I love to travel and "live" in various places. In the past few years, we have "lived" in Morocco (4 months), Boston (8 months) and Madrid, Granada, Sevilla, Anchorage, Playa del Carmen, Phuket/Khao Lak, Shanghai, Chengdu, Huizhou/Hong Kong (1 month each).
Noel speaks basic French. I speak Chinese (Cantonese and Mandarin) and what little Japanese I can remember from living in Tokyo for 5 months during my college years. We are both starting to learn Spanish and are always the oldest students in our intensive classes in Spain.
We love hosting folks from all over the US and the world!
