Originally from New York City, I love to travel, and have done my best to balance my wanderlust with many years of education on my way to becoming a doctor: volunteering at a hospital in South Africa, studying abroad in the UK, and learning about traditional medicine in India are just some of the ways I have managed to combine business with pleasure. Now that medical school is over, I am completing residency training in psychiatry, with long hours that leave less time for exploration. When I do have vacation, I love to visit the friends I've made all over the world.
I realized I need to edit my profile, since technically I am no longer new to Airbnb, having been a member for a while now, although I still feel I have not taken full advantage of what it can offer! I joined because I thought it would be a nice way to get away from the tourist crowds when I travel on my own, and also get some inside advice on what various places have to offer. I am quiet and keep a mostly vegetarian diet, and am not really into the nightlife scene: I'd rather have more daylight hours to visit museums, wander city streets, and figure out public transport to places off the beaten path.
