I am a computer programmer by day, beekeeper by weekend. I love swing & blues dancing, rock climbing, and (of course) traveling.
Swing dancers tend to travel all over the country and stay in each others' homes. I've been fortunate to get a lot of experience hosting people and being a good, low-maintenance houseguest. My boyfriend and I also used Airbnb to get around Europe last spring, and I can't imagine having done it any other way.
When I travel, I love to meet the people who live in a city and see what it's actually like to be there (not just to be a tourist). I'm perfectly happy to keep to myself, but I'm even happier to meet hosts that can advise me on how to make the most of my visit to their city.
