Wanderlust! Not unique in the AirBnB community, but I love to travel! Originally from America, my husband and I moved to Europe in 2011 for work...and to get in more travel! I have a background in journalism and work in science communication and my husband works in science research.
My favorite way to plan a trip is to look up restaurant recommendations and find the local (cheap!) out-of-the-way joints. We love road trips and outdoor activities, like hiking, and we are both avid readers.
We consider ourselves as friendly and considerate guests. We do not smoke or have pets/kids, nor do we consider holiday time to mean "party late at the local pub"--but we are happy to share a glass of wine or a beer with you! We tend to really fully absorb a local place, and would probably be home mostly just to rest our heads and have a shower and breakfast in the morning. If you have WiFi, always a plus. =)
If you are looking for guests who could be new friends and are happy to hear recommendations and stories, we can be that. If you would rather not know your guests are there, let us know, and we can be that too. We are good at following rules and tend to err on the side of being more quiet/considerate rather than making ourselves overly comfortable in your place.
