5 things I can't live without:
Food, Cell phone, Laptop, Soccer, and......H2O!
My first experience on here consisted of showing up to a house that looked nothing as clean as the pictures. Sleeping bags were stacked next to each other, and the living room had 8 people sleeping. Not to mention, my mattress lost all its air and I woke up on the floor! I would love to share pics with you about my first experience. I ran away after the first day when I was booked for a week!
Having said that, I believe there are a lot of great hosts out there, and I will continue to try this site out. I already had a second great experience.
