I am an Airbnb host and traveler with my husband Riley and our kitten Daisy! Riley and I love enjoying life together. We're always looking for fun activities that add quality to our lives. We're into anything that gets us moving outdoors.
I love practicing Spanish, dancing, reading and spending time with the people I love.
After some Airbnb stays, Riley and I decided to become hosts ourselves! We love hosting and meeting some of the interesting people that swing through Helena. We are happy to share our community because it's a wonderful place to be. What can I say? We're just a couple of happy campers. :)
