I love traveling, but I always wish I wasn't giving my money to some hotel... Airbnb is the perfect solution! I'm an easy-going visitor and like to explore new cities/places, using the room/apt as a "home base" for travels.
My personal hobbies are: reading, hiking, knitting, and gardening. I'm a big fan of hiking and camping in parks and nature (and have a slightly unhealthy zeal for national parks), but I increasingly love exploring cities. I wish I knew more about architecture because I'm fascinated by different styles (though I cannot name them). Surely there's an app for that.
I'm an English Professor by trade, but in another life I would own a coffee shop... or bookstore... or coffee shop/bookstore.
