I am a teacher of English and my interests include books, films, mountain hiking and yoga.
I love meeting people and supporting them to explore my city.
Hosting is about looking out for others and making sure they have what they need to feel safe and comfortable.
I am keen on travelling and with Airbnb I am able to travel without leaving home. The world travels to me!
I have two listings, my entire apt which is available when I am on holidays and a room which is one of the two bedrooms of the same apartment.
I might not always going to be around but my vibe is. Welcome to my home!
