Hi, I'm E.J. I'm originally from New York City. I've been living in the Charlotte, NC area for the last 16 years. I love to travel as often as I can, enjoy meeting new people, socializing, people watching, sports, amusement parks and going hiking with my two year old Beagle mix, Kai. I've joined Airbnb to be able to have other lodging options aside from staying in a standard hotel. To have the opportunity to gather information about a city from people that are natives to the area is a pretty cool concept. I made my first major travel adventure two years ago to Australia. That was a wonderful experience and it made it a priority for me to check out other parts of the world. This past summer, I had the opportunity to visit Italy (Rome, Naples, Florence, Venice), London, Spain (Barcelona) and France (Marseilles). Being from New York City has helped me to become a well rounded individual that's able to get along with just about anyone. I have a great sense of humor and just like to live life to the fullest. I enjoy meeting new people and definitely appreciate helpful tips to help me enjoy the city/country that i'm visiting.
