My wife and I teach at an international school in Doha, Qatar. We love to travel and to open ourselves to different cultures and experiences. I feel blessed that we have had the opportunities to do so. My favorite trips have been roaming the Gobi Desert, hiking the Annapurna Loop in Nepal and wandering the labyrinth of trails that wind past the waterfalls of Plitvice in Croatia. Five things I can't live without : the Internet, a good pair of walking shoes, a Kindle loaded with good reads, a comfortable hat and sun glasses.
When we travel I look for places to stay where I can sit up late and read without disturbing my wife. We have come to appreciate the personal touches that you find at AirBnB venues and much prefer this over hotel stays.
