My friends describe me as open-minded, versatile and generally interested in people and in the world around me.
I believe traveling is education. Quite simply put there's no faster, more fun way to learn about people, cultures, different values and perspectives than through a curious encounter with a stranger. For me traveling is about such encounters. That's why Airbnb has the potential to leave "a dent in the universe" (Steve Jobs): Staying at a stranger's house may irreversibly change the way you see another culture, its people and its values.
