I love good food, great wine, and a nice book to curl up with at the end of the day. As a student, I loved backpacking in the late 90s - the adventure of dropping off the train, chatting with the bnb owners who would come up to the gaggles of backpacker kids and show us folios and albums of their houses and rooms. It was fun travelling and experiencing the kindness of many strangers throughout europe, and staying in their warm comfortable homes. I met a South African family in an Austrian home, stayed at little neighbourhoods in Czechoslovakia and Hungary, and many quaint pensiones in Spain and Italy. Hope to relive some of that backpacking feeling again and meet friendly and nice hosts on my travels via Airbnb.
