I'm a retired journalist from the United States in an 18-year relationship. My partner and I are learning Spanish and so we appreciate the opportunity to practice with native speakers. I also speak a little French not very well.
We moved to Spain in January 2014 to experience living as expats in Europe. We tried several cities before deciding on Barcelona. We've often rented apartments when staying abroad in Argentina, Italy and France. During our last year in the states we offered a one bedroom suite to Airbnb guests. I have been an Airbnb member for two years and have enjoyed every home I've visited and every guest I've been privileged to host.
