My husband and I enjoy traveling, cooking, cycling, hiking, and reading. He is a UofA professor and I conduct evaluations for children with reading disorders. We travel quite a bit and enjoy meeting new people,learning about different cultures and avoiding throngs of tourists. We recently lived in Italy for 8 months, moving back in late January. This spring and early summer we have been busy planting flowerbeds that surround the Airbnb. The Airbnb, Wilson Park Retreat - also known with its stricter settings as Razorback Retreat is on one level of our home. We have only been hosts since February but, so far, we have really enjoyed it! Because we spend so much time traveling, we feel like we have acquired a good understanding of traveling for fun, traveling for work or combining the two. We try really hard to have our Airbnb comfortable and supplied with amenities that we have found good or comforting to have when we are away from home. Passing along a kindness is always a fun thing to do! Currently, we are living in Dublin but our daughter, Alison, is there to greet you and make sure you are well cared for. She attends graduate school at the UofA and serves as a good resource for answering any university related questions.
