My wife, Pallavi, and I love traveling and have been using Airbnb for many years now - primarily as guests, but more recently as hosts. We enjoy meeting people from all over the country and the world and have made new friends this way. We appreciate that our hosts can give us tips about what to do and see in their cities and we love to do the same for our guests in our NYC apartment.
When we are not working or traveling, we enjoy home improvement projects and generally creating a comfortable and well-kept space of our own. We take the same care when staying in others' homes and like to think that we leave little evidence of our stay.
