My motto is Live Life Well and Austin is the perfect place for that mantra, with its great restaurants, entertainment and wonderful outdoor fun. My degree was in English and I love to read. I also love to travel. My favorite place so far has got to be Peru and the Inca Trail. Machu Pichu is truly amazing. But I'm not done. The Airbnb concept is great because I love to dive into a place and really get the feel for what's it's like to live there.
