Christine is the prettier half of an already amazing French/American couple who love to travel slowly. Traveling with my wonderful French husband (Julien) we like to set down roots if even for a night or two to get a feel of what its like to really LIVE in a place even when on vacation.
We are as comfortable backpacking, camping and hitching as we are in pure luxury (when it happens upon us.)
We both have science backgrounds and while Christine teaches yoga, Nia and elementary school science, Julien spends his days trying to figure out how the brain works (and does yoga when he needs a break).
Favorite travel destinations:
We've traveled the world and rarely have we found a place that didnt agree with us, but if we had to pick favorites off the tops of our heads.....Bali, Tulum, Rome (and most of Italy), Sydney, this is just too hard, we love it all. Our most recent favoritest trip was Iceland this summer. We can't wait to go back....but maybe we will wait until summer again.
Five things we can't live without:
2.) A ridiculous amount of vacation time
4.) The ocean
5.) The Mountains
Our style of Hosting:
We often host people in our one bedroom apartment and have been known to take in stray travelers we meet in Santa Monica. We love letting visitors in on our favorite local things to do around the Santa Monica/Malibu area.
We love food! Christine isnt a huge fish eater, but she never met a fruit or veggie she didnt love and although people often think she is vegetarian that is definitely not true.
Julien loves food (including fish...poor thing, his wife doesnt cook it).
We could both survive on a diet or tropical fruit and avocados if need be :-)
