My name is Raquel, and I'm a recent graduate of graduate school, currently living in Portland, OR.
As part of my graduate program, I lived in Florence, Italy for five months, and through this experience, I was lucky to be able to travel to various cities in Italy and throughout Europe! AirBnB was a key factor in allowing me to visit these cities affordably and comfortably, and so far I've had great experiences, even if they have been relatively short interactions with the hosts.
I love traveling, getting to know other cultures, and eating (haha). Especially sweets.. I'm also looking forward to traveling to new places closer to home.
As a guest, I try my best to be respectful of the living space that is offered to me. I aim to keep my things in order and feel that I am polite and tranquil while in the home. When traveling, I typically like to get up early, drink a nice coffee with a long breakfast, and then go explore the city. If I travel alone, I usually like staying in at night, but I am always up for meeting new people and going out for a bit if I know others in the city.
I look forward to meeting you and hope to be able to contribute positively to your Airbnb experience!
