Your Host



Austin, Texas, United States · Member since April 2011

Hey there, I'm Joanna. I'm an UX director, yogi, traveler who is always looking for the next adventure.

I've traveled to Brazil, Iceland, Argentina, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, and most of Europe. The East Side of Austin is close to downtown, yet no where near as crowded. There are tons of unique restaurants and art galleries. As a host I'm friendly and love to chat with people but I'll definitely give you your space. I believe in the "Mi casa es su casa" rule - you're more than welcome to make yourself comfortable, kick off your shoes, and enjoy yourself.
