I live with my boyfriend, Mike (pictured with me to the left). I am a documentary filmmaker and he is an environmental scientist. I also write a music blog in my spare time. We like all kinds of things: travel, the arts, music, politics, going out, food, wine, books, tv, movies, dancing... We pretty much enjoy whatever.
While I can't speak for Mike, my favorite places that I have traveled so far are Peru and the Czech Republic. I grew up in Minneapolis, MN and then moved to New York for almost 7 years (that's my favorite city in the world). I have lived in the DC area for a year now. Mike came to DC from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
I believe that life is too short to spend much money on stuff so I spend most of my money (too much of it probably) on experiences - going out with friends, eating at new restaurants, going to concerts and doing basically whatever else there is to do.
If you stay with us during the week, we will at least introduce you to one of the best burgers you'll ever have and try to hang out when we're not working, and if you stay with us on the weekends we'll be your tour guides and paint the town red. Sometimes I have an extra concert ticket for my music blog, and would be happy to share that with you if it happens to coincide with your stay. And there's still a lot of this town that we haven't seen, so we would be happy to do a lot of the touristy stuff here too (particularly the museums, of which there are so many that we have yet to see even half of them).
