Hi, I am Tom. I live in Brisbane with my wife. I own a bicycle business and love riding, running and other outdoor sports. I also enjoy cooking and eating out. Like most people I enjoy travel and meeting new people. I've hosted a number of people at my apartment in Bondi but have never booked anywhere on AirBnB as I usually travel with my wife who prefers to stay at hotels. But when I travel for business I can stay in peoples houses and I love the idea of seeing a different side of a place, exploring neighbourhoods and getting an idea of how people live in other cities and countries. I've lived in many countries and cities and always love getting to know new cities and exploring the local areas. As a tourist you often don't get a good idea of peoples lifestyles in the places you visit. AirBnb helps spread that understanding.
