Signed up on June '11 to look for a place to stay with my loved companion in NYC..
Right now trying Airbnb with my wifey as a host:) Any questions, feel free to ask!
Cheers and hope to host you soon
I help Vasco co-managing our apartment through Airbnb (there's a high chance I'll be replying to your enquiries). We used airbnb for the first time travelling to NYC in Feb 2012 and we found it so great that decided to try being hosts back home. We're both working outside Porto although sometimes still use the apartment, mostly for weekends, but it essentially depends on our booking schedule.
I'm a trainee medical doctor born in China (for those who know, Jilin to be more precise) and raised in Portugal (in between Braga, Porto and Lisbon), so feel free to ask me whatever questions about these 3 cities:) Being a host (and a guest) since 2008, love travelling (sounds veeery cliché), food and wine(pinot noir and alvarinho), and of course, meeting people. I think I've said this before, but anywhere near the Pacific Northwest, specially Seattle, would be my favorite destination. I have very, very fond memories of the times I've spent and returned there, but every place I've traveled so far has its own unique memories. So, I'm here to help you make your trip easier and smoother - any questions we'll usually reply very, very fast.
