I have a Computer Science degree and I worked for companies like SIEMENS, Lucent, etc., but about 15 years ago I decided to get away from hi tech, and do what I like doing - home improvements, remodeling, and construction. My wife currently works as Program Manager for Microsoft. We like travel, and ever since our kids both graduated from college, we travel together - just 2 of us. For my vacations I like developing my own itinerary, rent a car, and travel independently. Our last couple of vacations included Italy, Costa Rica, Kauai, and St. John. It is on the last 2 places where we started renting houses/cabins for our stay, and we hope to continue doing so with AIRBNB.
