Nice to meet you! My name is Sofia. I am 19 years old and just starting to dip my toe into the waters of travel. My first official trip is going to be in January of 2013 from my home in Costa Mesa, CA to Eureka, CA, which is about 13 hours north. I'll be taking the trip with my boyfriend, Pete, so that we can check out the Humboldt State campus and surrounding area.
Needless to say, as a newbie traveler there are tons of things I am nervous about and I have lots to learn, but one thing that I can guarantee you will get from me is courtesy and friendliness. I love talking and listening to people, and to be honest, one of the big draws of travel for me is the idea of making new friends all around the (website hidden) assured, if I stay in your home you will find me to be nothing but outgoing, positive, and respectful. My family has had various renters living in our house for years, and so I completely understand the importance of a courteous housemate - even if it's just for a night or two.
Here at home I go to school at a local community college and work as a nanny. I'm finishing up the courses I need to transfer (email hidden) to study Child Development. I collect records, play the banjo and the guitar, play video games, cuddle with my two cats, and peruse local thrift stores.
Since my boyfriend Pete will likely be traveling with me a lot, here's a bit about him as well! He is 21 years old and we've been dating for two years. He is going to another local community college where he studies art - he's planning on using his education to become a tattoo artist. Right now he works at a grocery store. He plays the drums and, like me, loves to collect records and cuddle with his cat. He can tell you everything you would ever need to know about comic books. He's super smart and incredibly friendly, as well as clean and polite.
We're both incredibly excited to start traveling and we hope to meet lots of awesome Airbnb-ers along the way!
