Hi, I'm Peggy and my husband is Bill. We've both always loved to travel. I was a United flight attendant for nearly 25 yrs until retiring recently. I've started a new career as a licensed massage therapist and am now the owner/operator of BodyBloom Massage Studio in Hudson, OH. I haven't lost my love for traveling though. Bill is a road warrior as well. He runs a terrific local company that produces all natural, gourmet stocks and sauces. We actually met on a plane 20 years ago!
Some of our favorite places we've been together? In no particular order...Australia, Italy, Amsterdam, Nova Scotia, Big Sur, Anna Maria Island, Glacier National Park, Orcas Island and last, but not least, the glorious State of Oregon. We relocated from Portland to northeast Ohio a few yrs back for Bill's work, but I left my heart in the Pacific Northwest!
My favorite thing about international travel is how everything can be so different e.g. the language, cuisine, architecture, customs, even practical stuff like the toilets can be baffling in some countries.... yet when it comes to the people I am always struck more by the similarities than the differences. We're all human beings. We drink our morning coffees and walk our dogs; we cherish our loved ones and laugh with our friends; we work hard and make the best of what we have. We are mostly kind. We are mostly good. And I find all that to be fascinating and very reassuring. I really believe it makes me grow as a person when I'm exposed to new surroundings and diverse cultures. It's a big world out there, and sometimes travel can feel a bit intimidating.... but then something will come along to remind me that we're all in the same boat. Travel stimulates my mind and nourishes my soul. I truly love it!
As guests, we will respect your home, your house rules and your privacy. We're clean, tidy non-smokers who always leave a rental space in excellent condition. We're adaptable, good natured and trustworthy. We'd very much enjoy chatting with you about your city or your life, but only if you have the time. We love experiencing local favorites, so if you have any personal recommendations to share, we'd be grateful for the insider scoop.
I hope this gives you a sense of who we are. We look forward to meeting you.
Peggy and Bill
