I am a 33-yr-old American (originally from New Jersey but also lived in California for some time) who lived in Switzerland for the last 7 years where I completed my Ph.D. studies in Environmental Science/Biogeochemistry. I am now a researcher at the University of Quebec at Montreal (Canada), enjoying North America once again and being closer to my family.
I have enjoyed traveling for many years with my work/research and personally. I have used Airbnb to stay at places in Munich and Vienna and now two different places in Montreal while searching for apartments in this city. I participated in (website hidden) for a few years and have reputable references on that site to support the few references I have on this site. I love the experiences gained by staying at locals places and definitely appreciate their tips for places to eat and things to see and do. If I don't have to bring a guidebook, then I prefer not to ;)
