I am originally from New York and work in the software industry. I have been living and working in Stuttgart, Germany for the past year and a half and really love the area. In my spare time I travel. I've been able to see 11 countries in Europe in about 16 months. On the side as a hobby I dabble in amateur photography which goes great with all of the travels. I also enjoy playing guitar and reading.
I have little expectations in the places that I stay however I like to have as close to a unique experience as possible and so I have decided to remove staying at hotels. I think I'm pretty low maintenance so as long as a place is conveniently located near public transport and is clean that is about all I need. I also enjoy a space that is quiet. If a host can provide a nice family restaurant, bakery or market that is near then that is also a huge bonus.
