Now in our 60's, we are on a new adventure. We celebrated our 37th anniversary June 2020. WOW! ( We met in Jerusalem, Israel) We can hardly believe it's been many decades since we met. We love to travel, meet people from all over the world and work on our land.
We raised our four kids on our 2 acres in Madera Ranchos (Madera County, CA). We built our home in 1993 and planted over 100 trees in this barren land. Now it is a bountiful blessing. We bought 40 acres in 2005 and now are building a new home.
The Ranchos is a great place to raise kids. It's a space where kids can still play outside, find frogs,take country walks, ride bikes, and have bonfires making s'mores. For years, we celebrated birthdays, graduations and even a few weddings. So when we became empty nesters, our 5 bedroom home just became too quiet. What to do next? Well, we decided to start an adventure by becoming Airbnb hosts.
