Hey, I’m Laura!

Lovington, New Mexico, United States · Member since January 2014

I was born in the Midwest of America. A few short years later, I moved with my family to Czechoslovakia where we lived until late 1997. We made the move back to the States where I eventually completed my schooling with a B.A. in English. After graduation, I worked professionally for 2 years and because of the failing economy, I moved to South Korea in 2009. I lived there for 5 years with a short hiatus in Turkey. I moved to New Zealand in 2014 and just resettled back in the USA at the beginning of 2015. It's a big adjustment but I was lucky enough to have been offered a job that allowed me to work for most of the year and travel for the remainder. I am now married to the love of my life and he is also a world-traveler so it appears that my adventures are not yet over!

I have travelled all over Asia, North America, much of Europe and parts of South America. I love driving motorbikes, swimming, hiking, reading, dancing, music and making new friends all around the world. I love everything about food and the socializing and bonding that usually accompanies it.

I am so happy that Airbnb has taken off as an alternative accommodation for travelers. I truly enjoy staying at more authentic and memorable places. I hope to stay with many more hosts and to one day become one myself.
