I teach literature, and I love theatre! I get to travel some for work, but when I travel for fun I like to get to see slightly offbeat things and find the non-tourist hangouts. I'm new to airbnb, but decided that I am too old for hostels, and this seems like a great alternative.
I'm very quiet and considerate as a guest. My style of traveling is probably somewhere between backpacking and business. I often have to work while traveling, but take breaks to go wandering and hiking, and am as likely to go to a hole-in-the-wall jazz club as the opera. I tend to be pretty self-sufficient but am always happy to chat and get to know new people.
