I love sharing my home and life with international students and can't wait to meet the next one! I have been hosting for 20 years and have learned so much about other cultures. I've made friends that are still in my life, and gotten to travel to their countries as well. I have been fortunate enough to travel widely my entire adult life, so I may have been in your country, If not, I will want to know all about it. :-)
I live alone with my Chihuahua, Parker, but my sons and children come over. We are always going out somewhere, and you're certainly invited to join us anytime. Otherwise things are quiet during the week. I am a writer, and I work from home.
Our home is spacious, clean, and fully equipped with high quality furnishings and professionally cleaned every week. I am a total bed snob, so the bed lines are really fine. I love art, so there is lots of that around too. We are located in Plano, a contiguous surburb of Dallas, with easy walking access to the bus and train. We are situated between two major shopping areas, so shopping is quick and easy. Also lots of restaurants nearby. Plano is 20% Asian, so we have lots of authentic Indian, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, and Japanese restaurants.
You will have a spacious private bedroom with a full bed, desk, chair, dresser, bookcase, nightstand and lamp, free wifi, closet, window, and ceiling fan. However, please don't stay shut up in your room. Join us for meals, movies, or chatting by the pool or fireplace.
We speak only English here, and I am an ESL teacher, so if you want some hints on language while visiting, just ask! I am also a willing tour guide as I just love doing it when my schedule allows.
