Hello! Brian here from Minneapolis. I'm a midwest guy, born & raised, but I've also had the opportunity to travel quite a bit over the past several years. Germany, France, Japan, Eastern Europe, etc.
These days, I don't travel as often as I used to, but whenever I have a chance to get on the go, staying with others has always been more enjoyable than being in a stuffy motel room. It's great to chat with people who know their cities and can help keep me from getting too lost.
Hostels, host families, friends, friends of friends... it's always been the people, not always the places, that make the trip richer. So if I can find an alternative to a hotel while travelling, I will always jump at the opportunity to meet new people. Hello, AirBnB.
Personality wise, if easy-going doesn't describe me, I don't know what would. I like to keep things simple & light-hearted in life, which translates into being a pretty good guest. I'm on the creative side of things, so I love to chat about the arts, music, movies, obscure trivia. Don't play against me in Scene It.
I'm a health-conscious-ish kind of guy, so places with smoking inside are a no go, however, I have zero allergies and grew up with animals, so dogs, cats, fish, ferrets, sloth, whatever... no problem.
Alright, off I go. Auf wiedersehen.
