I have taken off a year at a time several times to travel the world and I also worked as an expatriate. I've spend the most time in Italy, India, Ireland, Thailand, Malaysia, Mexico and Peru and I speak Spanish and some Italian. Mostly, I enjoy getting to know the people, the food and the culture when I travel and live in other countries - I do not travel like a tourist. I'm passionate about food and am currently developing a food blog and will document my culinary finds as I travel. My finance and I are taking an extended trip in September to Italy, Spain, Turkey and Vietnam. I would describe my finance and I as friendly, considerate and interesting and we look forward to the unique travel experiences empowered by Airbnb.
