I love traveling and have been doing it for as long as I can remember--I could stay anywhere as long as it was relatively clean. Now, however, I have a little two year old girl and a husband, so that changes my circumstances. Now, when we travel, I like to have an extra room so that my husband and I can still stay up after the baby is asleep at night. It also has to be safe and is possible, child friendly.
As a guest, I am very mindful of the hosts' needs and like to leave everything as I found it.
