I am excited to share my home and meet new people. I'm looking forward to having guests and sharing Oceanside with people on holiday. I'm also excited to travel visiting other 9Flats.com hosts! I heard about you from an internet search and abcnews.go.com. About Me: I'm laid-back and very low-key, very coastal lifestyle. I love to travel and meeting people from all over the world. I've climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge, whispered at the top of St. Paul's Cathedral, bussed through Europe and took a Helicopter ride off of the Na Pal Coast in Hawaii. I've been to 39 of the US states and Territories, including Puerto Rico and US Virgin Islands. I have always been a creative soul ... My hobbies include creating handmade crystal jewelry and selling my watercolor paintings. I'm born on the cusp of Taurus & Gemini. Born in Florida, but a Cali girl since I was a kid. I love the beach and I'm obsessed with chocolate. I love reading, learning different cultures, tea, coffee, and people with a strange sense of humor. I respect wit, book worms and intelligence. I love British humor and USA sarcasm, real artists, accents, history, strangeness, gothic style, fashion, music, movies, and all things beautiful & beautifully ugly. Vampires and Zombies ... who can't live without them. I share my home (email hidden). Pomeranian, named Kharma "Fluffy Pants" Spiegel. He is the CEO (Canine Executive Officer) for my dog photography sessions. I'm a self-employed Photographer and soon to be Yoga teacher, as I'll be taking my 200-hr. YTT course in October 2014. Additionally, I work for the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon recruiting volunteers (organizations and individuals) to help support the runners.
