I'm a young(ish), female professional in the non-profit sector, involved with events and project management. I'm originally from Wisconsin, where I grew up and went to college. But I'm currently (Oct 2012) in the process of moving from Los Angeles to western Massachusetts for a new job.
I've never used airbnb before, but I've heard great things from friends, and thought it would be a great way to get to know the new city I'll be living in. Not only will I have a great place to stay with enjoyable hosts, but hopefully I can get some tips from my host(s) about I should live, how to meet people, and fun things to see and do in the area.
I'm an avid traveler, both for work and pleasure, so if this first experience with airbnb is good, it could change the way I travel in the future!
