J and I are a young, married couple who used to own and operate a hostel in southern California. We are travelers who live for the international experience and wish to recreate it by opening the doors to our warm home to travelers in the colorful city of San Francisco. J has backpacked through South America, where he taught English, managed a hostel, and worked at an orphanage. The breathtaking Iguazu Falls was his backyard for a time when he lived in a tiny town just below the majestic sight. As for me, I studied abroad in Japan before my wanderlustful feet led me to parts of Southeast Asia and Scandinavia. After three years abroad on a brand-new passport book, I have one page left in it - but I can walk through a charging sea of asphalt-hungry motorbikes like a champ, yay!
