After 7 years as a theatre casting director in New York City, I am about to embark on a 3 month trip (which I am dubbing my 'sabbatical') to Italy and France. I chose Italy and France because they are two countries I've always wanted to go to and haven't been. I also just need a break from New York! I particularly love good food -- and where better to go than the culinary meccas of the world? I love to cook (and especially love baking) and look forward to learning tips and tricks from locals. Of course, I also love to eat. Most importantly, I look forward to just relaxing, meeting new people, seeing new places and going where life (and this trip) takes me. I've always been one to plan and follow an itinerary, and I look forward to taking things easy and going with the flow this time.
I am especially interested in using Airbnb because of the opportunity to meet new people, especially those who live in the countries I am visiting. Nothing would be more boring to me than staying alone in a hotel and only talking to other tourists. I love to talk to and learn from people and hear different points of view. I am so looking forward to getting out of my comfort zone and seeing other parts of the world.
I am very friendly and think I would make an ideal house guest. I promise to be very respectful and, of course, neat and clean. I think it is an amazing thing for someone to open their homes to total strangers, and I respect and appreciate the opportunity.
I can't wait to start traveling and seeing the world, one place at a time.
