Looking at retirement in a handful of years, we want to get out of the house while we can! My wife and I enjoy traveling. We took a month off work & did a 'round the world trip a couple of years ago, visiting Cambodia, Turkey and Amsterdam, ending up in NYC where Kate has a son living in Brooklyn. We travel with backpacks, keeping it light as possible. We enjoy coffee and the NY Times on lazy mornings, we go to Gold's Gym but we're not nuts about our workouts. We own our home in Seattle, so knowing how hard it is to get "somewhere" in life these days, we respect other peoples' property. We don't need much in regards to a place to stay, but a clean place, a good bed (preferably queen size or bigger) and hot shower is greatly appreciated! We like to consider ourselves frugal, not cheap. That's why we like Airbnb so much!
