- Chelsea's Airbnb Symbol
I'm a 30-something professional living in Boston. I love to travel in order to see new things, taste new foods, meet new people and hear their stories. I've lived in Cairo, Egypt; Oxford, England, and rural Togo (West Africa).
I've been an active member of Couchsurfing since 2005, and have all positive reviews and verifications from guests and hosts alike.
I joined Airbnb years ago, per the request of a friend looking for references, but I'm just starting to use it to book places to stay myself.
I think Airbnb is a great model for providing guests with homey lodging and providing hosts with compensation for allowing the use of their space. If I stay in your home, I will treat you with respect by taking good care of it and leaving it in the condition I found it, or better!
