My husband Rob and I have spent many years living and traveling all around the world. We have met some amazing people in our travels, so it was only natural to open our home, too! Now we have the chance to show everyone how amazing Alaska is, and why we love it so much.
Rob and I have been together for over ten years, living the majority of it in Alaska, and we run two businesses together. These businesses, a media company specializing in website design and copywriting, and Soapberry Travel, an Airbnb, + Turo co-hosting + cleaning company, allow us the freedom for amazing adventures and last minute road trips.
We are originally East Coast kids; I'm a New Englander from New Hampshire, and Rob hails from North Carolina. We met when we were stationed together in Louisiana volunteering in the Red Cross after Hurricane Katrina hit. I remember calling my mom a couple of days after I met him- "You met a guy? In a disaster relief zone??!" I can still hear her incredulous voice. What a way to know the guy you're dating is a good guy! He was down there in the trenches with me, and the fact that we met over a mutual passion for helping other people set us on the path we're on today.
My husband and I share a strong love of travel, new experiences, and meeting wonderful people all around the world. We're working on our second languages; we are minimally conversant in Spanish and Italian, and know some phrases in German, Japanese, and Russian- but mostly we are excellent with hand gestures and miming to help get a point across. We are also fluent in translation apps. ;)
