American PhD student studying for a degree in Immunology in Bellinzona, Switzerland. I am an active, curious student originally from Colorado and Florida finishing up my degree and not sure what the next step is. This year me and my boyfriend (met him here, he is from Milan, Italy) would like to travel with both our families together in the USA. His family has seen very little of the US and are excited about visiting New York and the West. We are hoping Airbnb can provide us with a way to introduce them to America and travel together economically. We are very independent and conscientious guests (for New York it will be myself and my boyfriend in our 30's and his mom and aunts in late 60's early 70's and for the West trip it will be my parents as well). A perfect host will maybe give us some ideas about where to go in the area and give us privacy and we will do the same for our host. I guess the golden rule is what I try to live by, treat others as you would like to be treated.
