Hello! My name is Gabriel. I live in Austin, Texas, where I work as a network engineer. I love travel, there is so much of the world to see. I was fortunate to have experienced international travel, and habitation, at a young age. I was hooked on cultures from that point.
As an adult I had another opportunity to live overseas in Italy for a length of 2 years, which I accepted immediately. Since I have been back in the US, I try and travel as much as time, and money, allows.
I usually seek a travel location that has a few things that interest me, such as food, music, museums, and also a nightlife. I enjoy being a part of a community, so I thought Airbnb was a good fit. Also, a good friend of mine introduced me to the service from a recent trip to Honolulu.
As far as 2012 goes I have been to Edinburgh, London, Washington DC, and Honolulu. London is one of my favorite cities, with Rome coming in second. I have never been to Aisa, or the Southern Hemisphere, but hopefully I can remedy that in 2013.
The one thing that I cannot travel without is music. I only discovered my love for music when I moved to Austin in 2006 from Florida. Austin is considered the 'live music capitol' of the world, and hosts quite a few music festivals as well as countless live shows every year. While Austin has the environment that suits my interests, travel is the only thing that helps center me in the big picture.
I hope this provides a small insight into the type of person I am. I value honesty and effectivity communication. I look forward to establishing a long term business friendship.
