I travel with my husband Patrick 3-4 weeks every year, trying to visit new places every time. We've been doing this together since 1981, when we spent a month in France visiting his family. Can't live without: striped bass, art museums (I work at the MFA Boston), live music, hosting dinner parties on the back deck.
We are good guests: neat, curious, generous. Same thing as hosts. We like road trips, being surprised, talking to strangers, eating food that we can't get at home. We like a comfortable bed, a clean room, in a good neighborhood.
