I currently live in Portland, Oregon. I have used Airbnb for everything from work trips to vacations overseas. As long as there are comfortable Airbnb places to stay with great people to meet, I will never stay in a hotel. I look for great food, drinks, coffee and local experiences when I travel. If it is driving distance from Portland, I will probably have my dog with me. I travel lightly and do my best to respect the home that Airbnb hosts have so graciously shared with the rest of the Airbnb community.
