Hey, I'm Erika!
New York, New York, United States · Member since July 2012

I've spent most of the last ten years working with refugees but recently returned to school. I'm hoping to earn my PhD in Political Science some time before I reach retirement age. I love to travel, see new places and meet new people.

When I travel on holiday, I like to read fiction, poetry, essays... anything that isn't political science! I love live performance of any kind - music, theatre, dance. When I travel, I don't try to see everything on everyone's list. I just take things day by day and often end up spending a fair amount of time on a park bench, in a cafe or at the bar reading and writing.

I am very independent, so I don't expect hosts to become my new best friend or personal tour guide. That said, I am almost always happy to get a drink or grab a bite with a new friend in a new place. Just know, that I am low-key and don't expect anything more than the keys. If we connect and you feel like showing me your favorite place, just ask. Chances are pretty good I'll say yes.
