We're an out-going, personable, married couple. She sales software/hardware IT, he runs his own video production group in Richmond, Va. We stay busy with work and athletics (soccer on weekends & backyard renovations during the week) and the gym a few times a week.
Since you're a traveler , I'll share with you that during slow downs in my schedule we hit the road to Europe, South America and across the US. Favs include, but not limited to; New York, Chicago, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Miami, Austin, San Fran and Seattle. When we travel we believe in doing it the way Christopher Columbus did...figure it out when you get there. Except now there's all kinds of places to stay like Airbnb! The people are helpful to travelers looking to learn about their towns. Some of my favorite European spots are Faro, Portugal, Paris, Italy in general, Stockholm and Mallorca.
So a little bit about the guest I'd like to host. Someone who isn't loud or stays up too late. Is sociable but has their own agenda and time to keep. A professional person who respects the place of others but is always up for good conversation if they feel compelled or simply would like to converse after a long day from work...if solitude is what you're looking for there's a 42" flat screen to lose yourself in or a eliptical in the basement to work off the stress form the workday.
Travelers are always welcomed!
