I love-love -love to travel. I was raised in a city and now live in the north of north america, so when i travel, I tend to go to big cities where I can fill my boots with good food, entertainment, shopping, arts and crafts admiration, and taking photos. I'm a planner, so love encountering spaces and urbanism that work well (public spaces, high streets, effective transit, etc). I really like the idea of staying with residents of a city- to get the real feel of a place, and get the inside scoop on what is worthwhile to see and do in a short period of time. If we get our spare room a little bit spiffier, we'll happily join the Air B and B hosting community!
