Hello! We are Alex and Cheryl, a professional couple from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA. We both have been employed for many years by an engineering services firm.
Together we enjoy gardening, cooking, travel, music, opera, ballet, theater and film, bicycling, golf, football (soccer), and outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, sunbathing and snorkeling.
Alex has a passion for history, especially the classical and medieval periods of Europe, and the Byzantine Empire. He is a philatelist with an extensive collection of US and foreign stamps, and a collector of art and antiques. In younger years he engaged in rock and ice climbing, and downhill skiing, and continues to pursue an interest in extreme camping and SCUBA. He has conversational skills in Spanish and German, and some facility in French, Slovene and Dutch.
Cheryl is a student of the piano, an excellent cook, and a regular fitness and exercise buff. She is an accomplished craftsperson, and has enhanced her home with many unique and decorative creations. She has studied German and French, and is currently learning conversational Slovene.
We are sociable, polite, respectful and respectable, and our hosts would find us to be excellent guests! We look forward to connecting with a host or hostess whenever we have the opportunity to travel.
Alex traveled on January 2013 with his son to Amsterdam for a visit of several days, and they were guests there of an AirBnB hostess, and the experience was wonderful. In August - September of 2013 we traveled to Slovenia and Italy, and were guests of four different AirBnB hosts during our travels, with each one being fantastic. We plan to revisit some in the future, and also search for new AirBnB hosts for all our trips.
