I (Ian) am a nurse and Michael is a medical student. We are travelers at heart, and prefer to truly experience the local culture that cannot be found by following a tour group or guidebook. We happily get lost in the neighborhoods, happen upon hidden parks, and simply absorb the beautiful surroundings of wherever we are. For fun, we enjoy hiking, fly fishing, playing croquet, soccer, tennis, sailing, playing violin, cooking foods from around the world, and spending hours at the cafe. Together, we can speak French, English, Japanese, Chinese (Cantonese), and a bit of Spanish (and plan to enjoy learning more languages in the future)!
