About the Host, Todd And Christine
My wife and I have enjoyed welcoming more than 30 couples/individuals to stay at our home in Appleton since Fall 2013. We have travelled extensively throughout the United States and have also travelled to Ireland, England, and the Caribbean. We feel that by being frequent travellers we can understand the needs of the guests that stay with us. We enjoy biking, history, architecture, national parks, concerts/music, festivals, laid-back towns, great restaurants, going where the locals go and meeting new people. In 2013 we completed a 18 year quest by visiting all 30 Major League baseball parks. We also use Airbnb when we travel, not only to save money, but to experience new places with the people who live there.
