My husband, TJ and I are originally from Chicago. We are now living in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Prior to that, we lived near London and also in Shanghai, China. We try to travel to new (and for us, exciting) places. We don't need to hit all the tourist spots. Instead, we prefer to live like a local by visiting cafes and meeting new people.
Don't hesitate to reach out if you have questions about Amsterdam, London or Shanghai. I can also tell you our favorite places in Seattle since we lived there for 10 years.
