I love traveling, learning about other cultures, languages, cooking, manga, outdoor activities...For these reasons, I prefer AirBnB over hotels. I'm a mathematician / statistician, and my job allows me to travel often enough. I also try to take round-the-world trips once in a while, often with my husband.
I have always had positive experiences with AirBnB. While traveling I tend to spend most of my time outside the house, but I would also love to chat over a cup of tea or small lunch, and learn about the locals life.
