(Of course we are sideways! We are at Versailles and it's just in the air!) My husband and I have 1 very funny dog, now elderly but still lively. We do not smoke but are fine with a little dog (or cat) hair ;) We are working on our French and Italian language skills, and speak passable Spanish (and one of us speaks Mandarin). We enjoy seeing how folks really live and love trying new foods. I would say our travel style is budget--and then we splurge on an amazing meal ;> We like dancing, lots of different styles of music, and reading. We are trying to learn about different wines, another reason to be planning our next trip. I can't live without morning coffee, and since you must know, my mascara. Hubby can't live without his NPR podcasts. We both require fun, and are very willing to make our own if necessary. It helps that we are both easily amused!
