I am a writer and blogger, a married woman in her mid fifties. I have four children and a dog. I live in Connecticut and travel extensively, usually on my own.
My first time using airbandb was in Abu Dhabi in 2011. It was a great experience. Since then I've used airbnb about 20 times as a guest. I enjoyed it so much that last year I became an airbnb host at my home in a New York city suburb and also at 2 vacation properties I own in Litchfield County, Connecticut.
When people "get it" that this is a home stay, not a hotel, the experience can be fantastic.
I have met some amazing people and stayed in some amazing homes. I am airbnb's biggest fan.
