We are currently living in Brooklyn, NY. We use airbnb almost every time we go on a trip, whether it's in the US or another country. We traveled to Costa Rica in 2013, and Spain and France in October of 2012. Prior to that, in 2011, we went backpacking in Southeast Asia for 6 weeks, and we had an amazing time together--it was a real adventure.
When we travel, we really just want an authentic taste of the local culture...so food is a huge part for us, and then music, museums, shopping, or just talking to people we meet. We're looking to have lots of new adventures, or any experiences that makes the place we are visiting unique.
A little more about us: Rachel is a social worker who works with people in jail, and Tim works at an advertising agency in Manhattan. We've both lived in the New York City Area for a while, although Tim is originally from New Jersey and Rachel is originally from upstate New York. We've been together since 2009.
As guests, we like to be comfortable but are also VERY adaptable-- in SE Asia we lived out of day packs and stayed in everything from $5 hostels to a 4-star hotel (on our anniversary). We are SO grateful to be staying with you no matter what, and we are always especially happy to have helpful hosts-- and we aim to be as helpful to you as possible as well.
