I studied urban planning in graduate school (University of New Orleans) and am obsessed with visiting cities of all shapes and sizes. I'm from the Rustbelt (St. Louis, MO), so I have a particular interest in the rough-around-the-edges sorts of places. My friend Amy and I will often choose a random location across the country and will just explore its neighborhoods and nooks/crannies somewhat aimlessly--all thanks to airbnb. It's especially a treat to get to experience a day or two in the life of a city's non-downtown neighborhoods (as opposed to tourist-driven hotel districts)--and, of course, to meet the people that call those neighborhoods home.

Style of traveling: I like to walk, bike, and bus/train around cities virtually for the entire productive day, so I'm mostly looking for a place to rest my head at night. I'm quiet, respectful, and also reaaallllly enjoy sleep, so I think I make for a low impact visitor. :)
