My Husband and I live in Salinas Ca. We love to travel all over US and abroad. I truly believe that a genuine experience of a new place only happens when you can immerse yourself in the local community and people. That is why I love airbnb because it only only offer me an opportunity to be home away from home but meeting cream of the crop among locals and gives me a real appreciation of the people. Both of us are in medical field and approaching retirement and plan to travel. Our bucket list is very long still very place we go we want to go back. We love traveling meeting new people, new cultures and languages. Love to cook, love to try different foods, we hike a lot, highest so far has been Kilimanjaro. (Everest is out of the question) both of us love classical music, gardening and hosting dinners and picnics. Out of respect and appreciation for people trusting us and opening their homes to us I feel a tremendous obligation and a pleasure to treat their home as my own and leave it in the best condition possible. I believe in love and loving. I believe that people are good basically.
