I'm a first generation tri-lingual American who grew up with her extended family living 3,000 miles away in Lebanon. Such a background was bound to turn me into an avid traveler and explorer - and so it did.
I love traveling and discovering new cultures, people, and food (especially food). My favorite way to travel is to go at it alone and for months at a time. I find that only by traveling alone do you really get to meet locals and truly get a sense of a place. My immersive cultural experiences have varied from living for 4 months on a biological reserve in Costa Rica; living and studying anthropology for 6 months in Ghana; to backpacking for 5 months in South America to unwind after working in an office for 7 years.
I consider such experiences to be the highlights of my life and I love to meet people who feel the same way - hence, my joining of airbnb!
I'm currently living in San Francisco and studying patternmaking and design.
