Joe & Tammy from Pennsylvania, United States. We are in our early 50's and love to travel, although we don't have the opportunity to do it often.
I'm a computer programmer and network engineer, and have been running the information systems department for a manufacturing company in Pennsylvania for the past 14 years. We live in the Pocono Mountains region of Pennsylvania.
We discovered the joy of renting an apartment instead of a hotel during a trip to Puerto Rico a few years ago. In 2011, we made our first visit to Europe with a cruise from Rome to Alexandria, Kusadasi, Chios, Athens, Istanbul, and Naples. It was an amazing trip, and opened our eyes to European travel, and made us fall in love with Italy.
We started it off by renting an apartment in Rome for four days, in Via Giulia. We love how renting an apartment lets you be part of the neighborhood, instead insulated from it in a hotel. We've since rented two apartments in Venice, another apartment in Rome, and a wonderful apartment in Amalfi (our favorite so far!)
