I used to live downtown Vancouver (Robson and Richards) for nearly 4 years... Jan 2011 I headed off for some Euro-traveling. Malta for 3 months, Hungary for 3 months, Slovakia, Barcelona etc.
I recently got back and am currently "house hunting". During this time, I'm looking for temporary homes and I've grown tired of hotels (in 2011 I've stayed at 13 different places, mostly hotels).
And that's what brings me to AirBNB.
