I love to travel, not just to see new places, but also to get to know places through the people who live there. My husband Kyle and I love to camp and spend time outdoors. We are not really five-star people -- we like to stay in simple accommodations with character and opportunities for good conversation.
When we travel, we look for opportunities to experience local culture through food, music, beer and wine, museums, architecture and more. We also love to ride bikes and look for interesting bike trails when we travel.
I am new to Airbnb, but I am a top contributor to TripAdvisor, with 88 reviews in 37 cities and 29 helpful votes. In 2012, I was among the top 4 percent of reviewers read on TripAdvisor. I've had very few bad travel experiences, and I ensure my reviews reflect my true experience.
