I am from Texas and have lived in Arizona for over 20 years. My daughter took my picture by the Grand Canyon. She is the reason I visit Seattle. My son moved from Texas to Arizona so I drive up the road to see him.
When in Washington, D.C., I stayed with a host from airbnb and it was the lovelies place. My friend and her son went to Chicago to visit a college and stayed nearby at airbnb. They loved it. Now I am a fan.
