I'm a research associate in the archaeology department of Durham University in the UK. I currently live there with my wife Anni.
I enjoy traveling (of course!), which I thankfully get to do fairly regularly as part of my profession. I also really enjoy the outdoors. If possible, I prefer my travels to be a mix of city excitement, historical sites, and nature. I think its great when a city incorporates all three! I love meeting new people in the places I visit because it provides the best opportunity to learn about a place and its culture.
I think Airbnb is great because it allows for the opportunity to stay in really interesting places. Whenever I stay in an apartment vs a hotel, I always feel like i have a better understanding of what it might be like to actually live in a place.
