I love to travel and when I first heard of AirBnB, I thought, what a great way to offer up something more comfortable and authentic than a hostel yet without the expense and formality of a hotel.
Right now, I'm living in Madrid teaching English and plan to split my time between that and working as a scuba diving instructor so that I can see as much of the world and meet as many people as possible. My main interests usually have something to do with art, science or food and I generally gravitate toward like-minded people who are both creative and genuine.
As a guest, I'd say I'm open to getting to know my hosts but can also respect their space and privacy. I'm happy both to be on my own or up for a chat. When I travel, I try to be pretty flexible, both with people I meet and situations that I encounter, because it just seems to make for a more enjoyable trip.
