I work as an educational consultant. Former teacher now a teacher trainer and student teacher supervisor. My wife is Italian and we travel to Italy each summer to see family and friends. I study Italian, bicycle, swim, cook and bird watch.
I'm new to Airbnb as of October 2011 but think it's a good thing and I am (we are) looking to use it this spring. I helped one of my friends to set up a page listing for her Bed and Breakfast. She has had lots of guests. Very nice.
Both my wife and I are responsible guests and your place will be well taken care of during our stay.
