As of yet, I haven't used Airbnb but am planning a large trip on a tight budget, so I hope to find some alternatives to hotels and hostels, and maybe feel a little more grounded as a result.
The trip I'm planning (August through September 2012) is a work related trip. I'm making a documentary about the current state and future of our transportation systems in a world where urban populations are experiencing rapid growth, and with it, more traffic issues. My camera man and I will be visiting London, Copenhagen, Berlin, the Island of Sark, and Venice, Italy. I will also have another member of the production staff with me for part of the trip.
We hope to have a very productive trip, but also a fun one, and we are looking forward to trying out the Airbnb experience!
