Two Midwest transplants that take advantage of every opportunity to soak up the San Diego sunshine. Laurie is a Kinesiology & Nutrition professor that loves gardening, home cooking, strong coffee & great wine. Andy is a civil engineer specializing in bridge design, an avid outdoorsman and sailor aficionado. When we aren’t working on home renovation projects we are most likely traveling, fishing, hiking, or boating. It’s always an adventure with two young kids and black lab along for the ride. Travel is a passion...anywhere in the world, we love to just pick up and go! AirBnB has been a fantastic way to connect with people from all over...we love to hear the travel stories from both guest and hosts alike. And there's nothing better than the inside scoop on the best local spots so we're constantly on the lookout for places to add to the list as hosts! We believe the best part about traveling is finding places where you feel like you're at home no matter how far away you may be.
