I am many things: a Mom, a scientist (computational biology) on an extended Sabbatical, a permaculture enthusiast, a meditator, a cook, etc.
My 18 y.o. son Aaron and myself have been living in this awesome house for three years. We both enjoy gardening, intellectual discussions, music, meditation retreats and recipes from Yotam Ottolenghi cook books.
For years I would use 'vacation rental by owners' while traveling, and now it got even better with airbnb.
It is so much more interesting and less expensive to stay in people homes, rather than in a generic lifeless hotels.
I speak fluent Russian and Hebrew, in addition to English. And some Spanish.
We travel locally and internationally: Italy, Germany, Canada, Brazil, England, Jordan, multiple trips to Israel. Aaron traveled in Peru, Egypt and Israel last year. I just came back from Israel, visiting with my family and helping Mom. We are heading out for two week-long meditation retreat and decided to try to rent our place.
