I'm a computer programmer, my husband is a nurse --we love to visit new places(Egypt, Ecuador, Norway, Russia, Ireland, Scotland) and are (we hope!) low-maintenance travelers. We usually travel for a month at a time, and try to really get to know one place. Our last trip was a month-long ramble through Scandinavia (not surprisingly, danish pastries in Denmark are better than anywhere else, btw!).
Travel should be about enjoying new places, not worrying that they aren''t "just like home" -- to be honest, I am embarrassed by people who travel and complain that things are different (yes, I'm remembering you, rude woman, who had nothing positive to say about anything for three full days, even while looking out over the stunning scenery and beautiful weather).
The best part of traveling is meeting new people, finding that perfect local restaurant, and wandering around in new cities. We tend to be out-and-about all day, and return fairly early to sleep -- no late nights out at the clubs.We're far more likely to be out the door by 7am than dragging in after 10pm.
We're quiet, easy to get along with, and flexible. We love pets, and it's always nice when the resident dogs and cats are around--after a few weeks of traveling, we miss our own dogs.
