I am originally from Florida in the USA, but I've lived and traveled all over the world. The island nation of Taiwan has been my home since 1997. My favorite things in life are travel and food (but not necessarily in that order). I love traveling with AirBnB because it gives me a chance to see the local side of a city and its culture. I've had several successful trips with AirBnB. My favorite trip to date was the long weekend in Tokyo during the cherry blossom season of 2013 ... absolutely stunning. I look forward to staying in new places and seeing new cities and sites. As a guest in your home, I am deeply respectful of your property and thankful for the opportunities afforded by my hosts and AirBnb.
