I write poetry about cricket and velodromes. I`m currently travelling through the US and Canada with my girlfriend, Sierra (a postcard painter). We`ve just spent 6 weeks in Chile and Peru and have another 6 in North America. We`re both new to airbnb - it seems like a good way to see places and meet people in a way that goes beyond just skimming the surface. My favourite things to do when travelling is eat local specialities, visit galleries and velodromes. I like just hanging out in a place and getting to know it in ways that a generic tourist may not. Sierra likes drinking coffee, painting watercolours, seeing live music and eating watermelon.
