My name is Juliet and I am married to Steve. We are both in our mid-40s and have two boys ages 12 and 14. We are American but we are currently living in Amsterdam where Steve is working for Nike. We both grew up in the Northeast (of the U.S.) but have loved living in Oregon where Nike has its headquarters. We are in Amsterdam until the summer of 2014 and we really want to take advantage of our time in Europe.
Before we had kids we traveled to Pakistan, Tibet, China and Thailand. Juliet has worked and traveled in several countries in Africa. We've both seen quite a bit of western Europe and we can't wait to see more. Last summer we drove across the United States.
We really appreciate the opportunity to meet locals and hear their opinions about their country, politics, perceptions of the U.S., food and favorite places. We love a good meal! On several occasions we have hosted international students from local universities in our home for weekends and holidays. Last year we hosted an Austrian exchange student for six months.
We are both avid outdoors-people and we love hiking, running, biking, rowing and cross country skiing. We often travel with our bikes and our running shoes and always appreciate recommendations of trails and riding routes. We love a clean room and a quiet night. Thank you so much for hosting - we look forward to meeting you soon!
