My husband is a professor of economics and I am a retired teacher of English as a second language. We have traveled many parts of the world, including 5 weeks in Japan in Fall 2012. We believe our next lengthy trip will be to Spain in the spring. We've always had wonderful experiences staying with host families, whether or not via Airbnb. Right now, we are using Airbnb as travelers, but not as hosts. However, we love to play contract bridge and if you are a twosome who enjoy bridge also, please contact me if you come to LA.
