I am a recent college grad (yelp!) about to start working in NYC! Airbnb was recommended by a friend as I book a 6 week trip around the Mediterranean (and within deeper Europe, a bit).
Proximity to the bustle of any city is definitely a priority! But, staying away from anything TOO touristy is always nice.
What am I like as a guest? Well I have always lived in college housing so respect for the property of others is of course a huge priority. I don't plan to spend too much time indoors so I am hoping that having me as a guest would be relatively easy! Simple but well put together homes are what I am really looking for here because this will hopefully be a place for sleeping and relaxing, while most the of the day would be exploring and taking everything in!
