Most of the time I'm a homebody - I love cooking and reading and relaxing in my apartment - but every so often, I feel the need to learn something new and experience somewhere and different. I recently tried Airbnb for the first time in Paris and then Barcelona and it really made for a unique, wonderful experience. My last trip before that was to Cuba, where I studied government policy and organic agriculture. When I travel, I do visit some of the touristy sites, but I'm also interested in challenging myself and doing something unexpected. Also, I absolutely love food and I'm always looking for the best version of a dish or trying something I've never eaten before. I care deeply about helping to make the world a better place, but travel is the refreshing thing that I do for myself.
