I am a student from Seattle, Washington in the USA. I attend the University of Washington and am studying abroad in Montpellier from January until June 2013 and then I am excited to have 2 more months of traveling around Europe and want to fill it with as much adventure as I can! This is the longest that I have been away from home but as much as I miss my family, I am enjoying every second of this experience. I particularly love to read and spend time outdoors in the natural beauty that the world provides us as well as meeting new people and learning about their own lives, loves, and adventures. I truly appreciate the service that airbnb has provided and have always had great experiences. I look forward to one day being able to host others myself! Also, since being in France my French speaking abilities have definitely improved, however i greatly welcome any chance to learn and practice more!!
