My partner Robin and I are planning our five week trip throughout Europe in July. We are heading over for the wedding of our friends in Scaffhausen, Switzerland. We will catch up with mates elsewhere too as we used to live in Edinburgh and have loved ones dotted around the place.
We live in Auckland and Robin is a high school teacher in Art and Photographer and I work for Oxfam, an international development agency. We have travelled a lot together and among our favourite places we've spent time are India, Albania and Samoa - all so different but all fascinating and exciting.
We haven't used airbnb before but have heard good things from friends who have. We are great guests and look forward to experiencing Europe from homes and apartments rather than hostels or hotels.
