I am a 38 year old American, non-smoker, currently living in Orlando, although I was born and raised in rural New York State. I have a bachelor's degree in political science from Columbia College in Manhattan, and I work for a Washington, D.C. firm as a technical writer covering news and policies that affect U.S. federal government purchasing.
Because my job is 'virtual', I am lucky enough to be able to travel while I work - all I need is an internet connection. I REALLY love and appreciate good food, which is often what I base my travel on... some people visit famous monuments and plan museum trips; I plan what restaurants I am going to eat at, on what days I can find the outdoor food markets, and the local specialties I want to sample. I'm a quiet, tidy, respectful guest, and since I typically travel solo, I love the personal connections AirBnB enables me to make with people who can offer "in the know" recommendations that showcase the best of their hometown.
