I used to be a Chicagoan, a Charlestonian and a New Yorker. Now I live in Knoxvegas in gorgeous Tennessee and am surrounded by trees, dogs and horses. And cray cray drivers. For real. I've traveled as far as Vietnam and as near as the BBQ joint on the corner (great pulled pork platter). I'm a HUGE fan of AirBnb and have stayed in several apartments in New York and DC -- I'm a ridiculously clean and respectful guest. You'll practically never know I'm there. Unless you bring me beer. In which case...you'll definitely know I'm there. I love exploring new neighborhoods and places, even odd ones. Special points to anywhere in New Orleans, Paris, London and San Francisco.
