My 8yr old son and me are living in an lonely, old mill near Cologne. We like to travel a lot, and in 2012 we two men went to NZ together for three months. In 2013 we went to New York and Niagara Falls for two weeks, and in 2014 we travelled US West Coast and Hawaii. Sometimes we do shorter weekend trips in Germany and nearby.
I like airb&b because of the familiarity and personal contact. I am curious how other people are living, and what I can bring home from their culture. And travelling with a small son is much more easy in a private home compared to an anonymous hotel.
