I am a registered nurse, married with one daughter. The reason I have joined airbnb is to travel within the States and canada with my husband who is presently working and living in the Dominican Republic. He is in mining and his contract will expire in October, we are planning to travel together and like the idea of meeting new people as we travel. We both love the outdoors, are up and go people prefering to see as much as we can while we have this opportunity to travel. We want to feel safe in our travels by picking secure accomodation and local knowledge of what to do and what not to do. Most of our tripping travel will be by air staying in most places 3-4 nights. The start of our journey is the DR, flying to San Yuan for a few days before picking up a carribean cruise. We will then make our way to Miami, Washington DC, NY, Niagara falls,Chicago, Seattle. More planning to do from there! Possibly up to Vancouver then down the West coast to San Franciso, LA and home!
