One of my favorite things to do is to spend a day exploring a city that is new to me. I believe the best way to travel and explore new cities is through the eyes of locals. I've lived abroad in Spain and hosted multiple coach surfers in my day. I'm a native Californian and enjoy cooking meals with local and seasonal ingredients, hiking, and spending days at the beach. I'm a respectful house guest and appreciate the opportunity to meet new friends and stay in places with character and charm.
