I'm an American, but I've lived in England for many years. I was born and raised in San Francisco, but I've also lived in southern Illinois, southern Indiana, Dayton, Ohio, and the Washington, DC, area.
When I travel, I like to settle in for a bit, and really get to know a place. In the past, I've spent a few months in Wales, Gulf Coast Florida, and Asheville, NC, among other places.
I've stayed in several Airbnb homes as I've traveled and found it to be a great way to see a place like a local.
