My partner is fully retired (from the LAPD) and I am semi-retired (events and meeting manager) here in sunny Long Beach, California, home of the Queen Mary. We love traveling in various forms from adventurous eco-tours to pampered cruising.
It is our desire to meet others all over the world with a particular eye on Ireland where we plan to visit in the fall. If we could find a home swapping opportunity, that would be a consideration.
Iâ€™m a passionate Linguist currently completing my masters in Applied Linguistics. I would like to swap my language skills in English and French for sewing lessons in particular but also general arts lessons or further language study. Really interested in Portuguese and Japanese.
I think of myself as a creative and adventurous individual who loves to experience new things and learn from different types of people. I would say learning about different cultures and ethnic backgrounds has become an integral part of me and is something I have always been interested in from a young age. As a result of this, I love to travel. I also love art, music, books and trying out different types of cuisine. Through my previous experiences, I have gained tips on travelling and how to save on costs when planning a holiday or spending for one. Additionally, I love to cook and make different types of cuisine, I am very good at cleaning, due to my articulate nature, and consider drawing as my favourite pasttime, which is something I would love to share with other people.
I have been teaching Japanese language and calligraphy in Scotland more than 15 years.
I can offer the following services :
Japanese language private tuition and classes
Learn the language and culture for business, leisure. Any levels.
I have a lot of hobbies like DYI and electrons (I love making projects in raspberry pi).
I'd like to learn acting, or Magic tricks.
Have a look at my profile and let me know if you can help by sharing your skills :D
