My wife and I live in Los Angles, CA and are both freelance hairdressers. We travel a lot for work but rarely get a chance to appreciate the cities and countries we go to. Staying in hotels isn't our idea of fun, therefore this arrangement is perfect.
I would assume that we are pretty easy guests to have as we are obsessively clean and rather quiet. We like to go to restaurants, movies, museums, or just stay in and make dinner.
I like to take many, short trips per year and usually one long one around the holidays as both of out schedules free up around then and it is nice to get away. We have two dogs that we miss like crazy though while we are gone.
