First off, I'm a very nice house guest! I always consider myself a guest in someone's home and treat the house and the hosts' possessions and privacy with respect. I'm from the UK, though haven't lived there since 1990. Since then I've lived in various parts of the world: Cambodia, Myanmar, Eritrea, various parts of the former Yugoslavia, the US and - most recently - Thailand. I'm now living in France and working across the border in Geneva with the United Nations. I love to travel (obviously!) and my family includes British, Korean, American, Italian and Thai backgrounds in just four people. I started using AirBnB as it's so much nicer to stay in a home than a hotel and the more I travel, the more I appreciate that.
