Hey, I'm Alexandra!
Toronto, Ontario, Canada · Member since June 2013

I am a Masters student in Book History and Library Science at the University of Toronto. I spend most of my time in libraries and absolutely cannot travel without at least one or two books by my side!

I like to keep my trips to one or two places so that I can stay still for a while and get to know each place (rather than hopping around to different countries). This is why I love the idea of staying in someone's home - a way to really get a sense of what it would be like to live in a different city.

When visiting new places the first thing I usually try to do is find a cafe and sit down with a book (of course) while getting acclimatized. I also head straight for any art galleries, museums, libraries ... though I do try to avoid really busy spots (I don't like crowds)!

My boyfriend (also a grad student at Toronto) and I are travelling in Italy this summer and we are looking for quiet places to stay and get a feel for the Italian lifestyle.
