Elise is studying 3D Animation in Canberra, and Sarah is a Science Writer/Editor. We were both born and grew up in Australia, and we just returned from Airbnb-packing for 12 months around the world in Canada, USA, Argentina, Chile, Europe, the UK and Hong Kong. We travelled on a budget and loved staying with locals. It's great to experience how other people live.
We are digital nomads, so fast internet and a relaxing environment is always important to us; a good cup of coffee never hurts too. We have stayed with over 20 Airbnb hosts, and tried to replicate all of our favourite stays into our own hosting style.
We love sharing a bottle of wine or a cup of tea, and cooking a vegetarian meal or two. We've got loads of great stories, and would love to hear yours. Our favourite travel experience was dog sledding in Canada, followed by spotting toucans in Iguazu Falls in Argentina. We can't go past a good zombie movie or Jim Carey comedy, and our favourite musician is Steven Page, who was the lead singer of Barenaked Ladies until he started going solo. We saw him in concert in Canada, which would be our third favourite travel experience (possibly even our first.)
