I am a 32 year old working as a ruby on rails web developer and user experience designer. Currently I am building a online marketplace for cityscape and landscape photography.
When I stayed at my first Airbnb space, I was instantly hooked. I now also host my 1 bedroom apartment (link below) and plan to do some serious traveling in the next 12 months. I'm starting to really enjoy the Airbnb lifestyle.
I think Airbnb is a great idea for those looking to travel a little wiser rather than spending money on pricey hotels. And it the best way to experience a new city by doing as the locals do.
I appreciate those offering their apartments or homes to travelers and I would have the utmost respect for your place and treat it like my own space.
