About the Host, Melonie
Five things (ok, seven things) I can't live without:
1. Meeting new and interesting people
Overall I'd have to say our place is one of warmth and comfort; a definite home away from home. I feel it's really important to treat people how you'd like to be treated, especially when traveling! What does that mean? Hot coffee or tea in the morning, NY bagels or muselli with yogurt, a clean, quiet room to rest your weary head from long day of walking the city and lots of help.
After living in and travelling much of southeast Asia the past year, I learned how what sharing and hosting were all about from a completely different perspective. So opening up our apartment just feels natural I guess.
