Two years ago 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.
Unfortunately I had the possibility to go again for holidays to the US last year - this time with my girlfriend. We spent many nights at different Airbnb hosts and experienced lovely moments and without a doubt wonderful people.
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 sports (soccer - we say football, tennis, snowboarding ...). My most favourite way to travel is to rent a car and travel around to see as much as possible.
