Hello, my name is Irina, I´m from Saint-Petersburg (Russia) but currently I live in Manchester (UK) with my fiancé [husband since 12/12/13] where we are studying English and building up our family.)
I used to be a lawyer, but one day I decided to quit and still haven´t found a suitable alternative, sad enough... but instead, I have planty of time for my two obsessions: foreign languages and traveling .)
This site is a brilliant idea to get rid of superfluous mediators like real estate or travel agencies and to join hosts and tenants together.
We have already some positive experience with airbnb. As we are gradually getting disappointed with overestimated hotel rates for their dodgy service, now on we prefer to deal with nice hospitable hosts for fair price here.
We've already happily rented flats in Moscow, Milan, Barcelona, London, Larnaca. So far, so good!
