My husband and I really enjoy traveling. We have recently completed a cross-country US car trip which was great fun. We hope to be able to do the northern route another time.
We consider ourselves fairly low-key travelers who are not very picky about our accommodations. Since we are very interested in history, it's a great bonus if we can stay somewhere with a local story to tell. We try to cram a lot of sightseeing into our days so we don't tend to spend much time in our room. We prefer staying at someone's home or rental over a hotel.
