Hello! I'm an archaeologist in my late 20s, originally from Virginia. These days I'm studying in England, where I live with my boyfriend in a canal boat full of antiques. I've been a couchsurfer for a number of years and I love the inside information that staying with a local provides (though I also love when the place you stay provides clean sheets - hence AirBnB ). In general, I enjoy slow travel and slow food and have lived in both Italy and New York - two culinary capitals! I'm addicted to All Songs Considered, RadioLab and pretty much all of BBC Radio 4.
I'm a practical, adaptable and generally laid-back person and a respectful and tidy guest. If you're a CS member you can read my (website hidden) references under the username 'actrent'. I'm very pleased that they are all positive.
Marcus, my boyfriend/partner (depending on if you use the US or UK term), is in his late 30s and is also an archaeologist. He is delightfully British, extremely friendly and has a great sense of humor. His many interests include growing really hot chili peppers, the Shakelton expedition, and canal boats.
Thanks for checking out my profile!
