I'm from Berkeley, where I work at the Y. I graduated from UC Berkeley (and like many grads, never found my way out of Berkeley again!). My two favorite vacations are ones where I can go to the ocean and ones where I can experience the arts (studied theater for a while when I was younger). I have a hard time taking a vacation--both because it's hard to take a break and I'm a bit frugal! Been great to discover airbnb, and I've really loved the two places I've stayed so far. Especially love to have a kitchen, as I'm kind of picky about what I eat and I really really enjoy having the time to cook!
