We are a couple and enjoy meeting people from different walks of life.
We love the idea of hosting and getting hosted. It surely adds up to the travel experience and way better/different than cliche' hotel experience. It is greener, friendlier and home-like. Great way to know about the local people and give it directly to the local community. It rejuvenates the value of mutual trust, respect, warmth and sharing.
We have been fortunate to hosts several guests and receive some good reviews.
We have been also hosted by some wonderful people.
Presently we are not hosting at our home but we like to use airbnb for our travels.
