I found out about Airbnb from a close friend - can't believe I've gone so long without it! Some may describe me as a workaholic, but it all pays off when I get to take a long-sought sanity trip to relax or have an adventure. I have traveled to many countries over the years - Canada, throughout the US, Mexico, Brazil, England, the Netherlands, Austria, Slovenia, Slovakia, Croatia, Hungary, Spain, France, Andorra, and Italy so far. Ironically, my momentum and my ability to travel has waned somewhat now with the onset of age and a steady paycheck, but this just means I look forward that much more to the next trip.
What I look for most in a place to stay is the proximity to culture and to natural beauty - a place to relax but not so much as to keep me indoors.
