I am from the NYC area but I currently live in Siena, Italy. Two years ago I quit my job and decided to travel for a year..during that year I made a pittstop in Italy to learn Italian and ended up moving here permanently. My travels took me to Scotland, England, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, France, Greece, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand.
When I heard about airbnb last year I thought it was a fantastic idea and have already used it once to rent an apartment for my Italian friends who visited NYC last spring.
My parents are Greek and we still have tons of family in Greece. We also have this great apartment which I am renting out to visitors.
