I enjoy the simple pleasures and suprises that tend to get thrown my way, however mundane. Such as getting a roll of film developed, reunions with old friends, a good belly laugh, eating a really good sandwich, seeing a great gig, or trying a new fruit for the first time.
I am in my early thirties and left my home (Australia) three years ago to live in London where I work as an occupational therapist. I'm new to airBNB but have had really great experiences as a couch surfer in 2009-10 when I travelled from Copenhagen to Seoul. Staying away from the touristy hotel neighborhoods and out in the suburbs (where REAL people live!) really enhances my understanding of a city and it's people.
