Travel. Soccer. Movies/TV. That pretty much sums me up! I moved to Los Angeles 4 1/2 years ago and begin hosting travelers from all over the world with my roommate. We enjoyed it so much, we decided to try out AirBnb and have loved every guest that has stayed with us.
Last year the international travel bug hit me, and hit me hard! For several years I had a trip planned for South America (Uruguay, Brazil, & Argentina). I hadn't learned Spanish like I promised myself I would and was with my mother who knew less Spanish than I did... I knew it was going to be interesting. And interesting it was! But it was also amazing, fantastic, and magical at times. We met some lovely people in each country and still keep in contact with one of them.
When I returned, I tried to get back into the swing of things, going to work, hosting more guests. Then an opportunity arose for me to go to Europe. So on a spur of the moment decision, I decided to fly to Dublin to meet a good friend (that we had hosted with AirBnb, actually!). After a few days there, we hopped over to France. What a wonderful and lovely trip. The magic of traveling is something that you never fully realize until you do it... and it gets better the more you take advantage of those times.
Other than traveling, I work, follow the soccer world, watch movies and hang out with friends. What more could you ask for?!
