We're Karl and Rachel.
In the photo, we are at an old fort in India. We like to travel and I (Karl) have been to more than 50 countries, Rachel has been to fewer.
In the last two years, we have hosted 42 guests at our home though quite a few have been couples so it's more than likely double that.
We like to socialise and meet new people and we can give you information about the local area, what to see and how to get around.
We also like the outdoors and like walking and cycling or visiting the sea and sandy beach which is only 20 minutes by metro which is as dramatic on a winter day as as summer one.
I'm a vegetarian. Rachel is not.
We don't smoke, but you can smoke in the garden
I only speak English fluently but I can get by in basic German, French and Spanish.
Rachel speaks fluent Mandarin, Cantonese and English.
