Now retired we like to travel beyond our homeland of Scotland as often as we can! We have used airbnb in the USA, in Washington and Philadelphia, so successfully that we ventured to London and Vienna in early December last year. Now planning our Big West Coast trip from San Francisco to Vancouver and have found some lovely airbnbs to try! Airbnb provides a great choice of places and like minded people of all ages to meet. We have recommended airbnb to several friends who have also started using this method of finding good, interesting accommodation.
