Beautiful room with private bathroom filled with art and light in a quiet neighborhood close to VGH and Children's Hospital, 10 minutes to downtown and very transit accessible. Walking distance to parks and all the shops you'd ever need.
It is a townhouse, so no late loud noises after 11. I am a sensitive sleeper, so that includes noise in the living room and patio as I really hear everything. No smoking inside - on the patio is fine. Other than that, common sense applies. I'm actually pretty flexible about things if you check in things with me first.
I'm fairly relaxed who enjoys switching between in depth conversations about people and culture and a bit of silliness. I have a MSc in Computer Science and do acting now and then. I keep in touch about world events and can even sing a song containing all the countries in the world. I meditate and generally like to create calm atmospheres.
In terms of travelling I prefer the third world - a place very different from where I live. Just taking a few snapshots in a beautiful place doesn't really do as much for me, even in places like Machu Pichu or the Taj Mahal which I've been to. I like being immersed in other cultures. India is my favorite so far. I've spent almost a year there.
