I am a keen traveller, often for work these days. My husband and I have 3 adult children who have also caught the bug and left home. We both have worked in education and I am now managing a not-for-profit professional art teacher association.
We prefer to stay for at least a few days, or a week when we travel now, to get to know a place well. We did quite a deal of touring in the past, including an overland journey from Kathmandu to London!
I was introduced to airbnb, after my daughter's wonderful experiences in Europe and the USA in 2011. Since then we have enjoyed marvellous experiences staying with wonderful hosts.
