Hi! My name is Lauren. I am a Surgical ICU/Trauma nurse from and living in Albany, NY. I have lived in Europe after graduating my first go around with college and taught english in Barcelona for about a year and a half. I had the opportunity to travel all over Europe and know what catching the travel bug is all about now! I have used similar websites in Europe several years ago and find airbnb to be a step up from them and I LOVE it!
