I'm a young cheerful woman living in Antwerp (Belgium). I'm lucky to be able to travel around the world for my job. As a PhD student I'm doing research about learning in primary education. Occasionally, I go on conferences abroad. Most participants stay at an hotel, but I would very much like to find another way of enjoying my stay during the conferences. I believe booking through airbnb might be just that first step. In the past I went on holidays by visiting friends abroad. I find it a very pleasant way of getting to know a place and its culture. And of course I also like going on vacations apart from conferences :-) . For this as well I'd like to explore the airbnb possibilities.
