In between travels I have been working in London, Barcelona, and Melbourne. In Australia I have also been a volunteer for the rainforest protection movement and for WWOOF. Today I work for the gardens and lands department of Zurich helping the employees with their IT issues. When I travel I am missing Bürli bread and chocolate yoghourt. I am married to Elisangela who is from rural Brasil. She works cooking lunch for a lot of school children and she is also verger of an old pretty church in Zurich. Elisangela misses her home land and calls her parents every day.

I have read about Airbnb businesses who are already more like a hotels because they are listing so many accommodations, and I counted I am also listing 10 accommodations. One of then is an old couple who have a cute cottage in their garden. We always like to meet them. What I get from Airbnb I entirely pass to them and they give me from the delicious eggs of their chicken sometimes. Two rooms that I am listing are from a friend whose house was too empty after his wife died. Now the house is much livelier and he also seems much happier again. He thinks I should get something for making those contacts, even if I never expected it. Three listings are actually only one holiday house that we own, but during the Film Festival in Locarno I only rent two rooms and I make breakfast because then we always have very good conversations under the kaki tree. Our own accommodations are not so perfect and therefore I try to describe them very well, hoping that sophisticated people won't even consider staying with us.

Airbnb says it is not a hotel, but I always get messages trying to encourage me for instant booking. I think that instant booking should be something exclusively for hotels. If people do not have a meaningful profile or if they won't tell anything about themselves then I might not even answer their requests.
