I'm a Ph.D. student in medieval literature, wandering the world whenever I have a chance. 60-odd countries and counting!
I like cats and opera most of all. And books, as many books as possible. I probably have too many shoes.
I've had a lot of fun on (website hidden) and hospitalityclub over the years, but I think airbnb's model is a more sustainable way of connecting travelers and creating better travel experiences.
