I'm a biologist, educator, and musician. At home in Boston, I sing, play guitar, and drum for a few rock bands and the occasional one-off fill-in for friends' shows. (A couple of projects you can search for if you're curious: Hammer and Snake, Viva Gina). Even though I have a lot of noisy hobbies, I'm a bit of a nerd, so I'm a pretty quiet, go-with-the-flow traveler and mostly use my lodging for sleeping. I am definitely not going to destroy your house with partying.
When I travel, I most enjoy the change of scenery - different flora and fauna, different architecture. Oh, and the food. I enjoy going to grocery stores and food markets as much as restaurants - there is something weirdly thrilling about seeing the subtle (and not so subtle) home-and-abroad differences of mundane stuff - magazines, candy, snacks, etc. (There's that nerd thing I warned you about.) I've been to Japan, Spain, Bulgaria, Turkey, and Ireland.
I had a great experience (website hidden) in Turkey and one really awesome AirBnB host - looking forward to having more!
