We are a financial economist and physiology researcher (currently a full-time mom) with our infant son, cute little girl, and teenage labrador retriever. We travel extensively within and outside the U.S. and have exchanged homes on several occasions with very pleasant experiences. When visiting cities, we like to be centrally located and within walking distance to major destinations. We prefer comfort over luxury and like to walk, run, and bike as part of our daily activity. When away from cities we favor mountains over beaches but like both. We enjoy parenting, good food, company, theater, and books. We don't own a TV, are clean, neat, clutter free, and value activity over objects.
