I'm from the US near Washington DC. I graduated in May 2012 with a degree in French and public relations. I am currently living in southern France as an English teaching assistant at the primary school level.
I've used Airbnb four times now and have had great experiences all four times (Iceland & Italy). I love traveling and hope to use Airbnb around the world!
As a guest, I treat the place as I would my own home since I know it takes a lot of trust to let strangers stay in your home. I like Airbnb since it's more personal than a hotel and it gives you a better sense of the city/country you are visiting.
