I joined Airbnb last year after a friend showed me some of the fun and eclectic places for rent in cities we travel to. I've been hooked ever since! I actually browse for fun when I'm bored. Our first Airbnd visit went so well that we came away feeling like we'd just experienced a visit to a new place as the locals do. That makes our lodging part of the adventure instead of a corporate hotel timeout. We loved finding local coffee shops, dive bars, hole-in-the-wall restaurants, and walking as much as possible. We look forward to discovering new areas the same way.
