Last year was my first time to the US. After some motels I stayed at, someone suggested me to use airbnb instead.
So I tried it and was excited. There were two places (San Luis Obispo and Los Angeles) I booked via airbnb for some nights and it was awesome. The people were very nice, provided me with information and everything was just great.
I built a small webpage for that trip last year - go check it out: w w w . mtsontour . c o m
Unfortunately I have the possibility to go again for holidays to the US. Of course, I'll try to find some overnight stays with airbnb ;-).
Airbnb is asking me to tell some things about me: well, I'm interested in travelling, technique stuff (I studied information science, I guess that's why...) and in sports (soccer, tennis, snowboarding, ...). My most favourite way to travel is to rent a car and travel around to see as much as possible.
