Oh dear. I don't like talking about myself. It feels like an internet dating profile.
I just like AirBNB for the possibility to travel in a way that can be a fix to big, corporate, faceless, anti social hotels. I've stayed in a lot of these for work.
Having to go through all the hoops with AirBNB I think really attests to that. With a hotel you just call and book, sometimes even no deposit.
With AirBNB I had to upload a passport, connect (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), write a profile, book ahead and pay upfront.
Because it can be totally worth it. Just that one AirBNB experience, even just once. It makes it all worthwhile. This what makes it addictive. Being in someone's home is an honor which you feel. I've been honored to have some amazing experiences because it feels like you can be living as local people do which really is what makes life interesting.
