We are two very happy, retired Seniors, former educators. We live about 6 miles from the quaint town of Brooklyn Mi., which we enjoy as a pleasant escape from the bigger cities. Having built our home on a lovely blue sparkling lake on ten acres, we are able to enjoy the beauty and serenity of Michigan, daily. A favorite past time is to explore the United States seeing historical sites and museums. Likewise,as a couple, we have been to Rome, Venice and Florence, the World War II sites of France and London. In addition, JoJo has spent time in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Bulgaria.
Reading non-fiction is a favorite, as well as spending time on our pontoon in the warmer months, sipping a glass of wine, visiting with our lake neighbors and appreciating the beauty of our lake with its offerings of swans swimming with their
new brood each year, sneaking up on turtles sunning themselves on logs near a small island, watching beavers and muskrats building dens & seeing a mother deer with her fawn sipping at the water's edge. We feel very fortunate to live in such a peaceful environment. Our motto ( we have several) is what Lincoln said, "You're as happy as you make up your mind to be." We have recently traveled to San Francisco and South Lake Tahoe and booked through Airbnb. We thought it was a good alternative to the cookie cutter hotels and more value for our money. Most hotels are basically the same in the rooms. However, we do love bed and breakfasts, but due to the cost of operations and the luxury offered, we have seen the prices rising considerably and understandably; but,being retired and on a fixed budget does not give us the latitude we once had to stay at beautiful and historic B & Bs, so Airbnb has become a welcome site. Because of our positive experiences as guests, we decided we would join as hosts.
