I am a professor whose research area is popular music, even though I don't play an instrument. I'm young for my age, or so I'm told. I'm energetic and youthful in outlook and always ready for an adventure. In 2010 my family (me, husband, 16-year-old musical theater-crazy daughter) traveled to Japan and couchsurfed for some of it. We host couchsurfers from time to time when we're not too busy. I've used Airbnb in the US, Canada, the Netherlands, Germany, the Czech Republic, Australia and England and can't wait to add more countries to that list! I love programs like this that personalize travel and build community.
