[Megan] I've been traveling since I was young, with my NYC family and then to study abroad in Scotland, Russia, and Norway. Other recent trips have been in Africa (the Seychelles, Uganda, Namibia and South Africa), China, Italy/Corsica and Malaysia. Even though I'm a civil engineer who loves cities, I'm strangely drawn to remote islands - the Orkneys, the non-touristy Greek ones like Folegandros, or even just the little islands in Lake Bunyoni. This summer I've gotten to explore more of the Pacific Northwest - from Bellingham to down the Oregon Coast and the California redwoods.
My best travel experiences have been with great hosts, and to pay that back I would love to provide a comfortable home-like experience for our guests, including access to a fully-stocked kitchen, a private bathroom, and a bedside table.
[Saul] I never traveled far from Chicagoland as a kid but have gradually been opening up to it since I moved to Seattle in 1998. My first overseas trip was with Megan to Iceland when we first met, and last year we visited Europe (London, Amsterdam & Copenhagen). I would love to visit Japan someday.
I enjoy meeting new people and sharing life experiences. Megan and I stayed with friends in London on our last trip abroad and I realized that's the way I want to travel from now on. It's more personal and you can discover local hidden gems that you might otherwise miss.
