I have started in AirBnB as a guest and I really enjoy it, that's why I became a host too. Thanks to my mom and my brother collaboration now I can host nice people in my flat in Rome. I think airbnb is a great idea to travel around and meet new people.
I use airbnb for job trips as well as for vacation with my wife.
I always take my camera with me. Photography is my first unprofessional job after work and I really love portraits of people. It's a good way to socialize.
When I travel, I don't like collect places, but I always try to live a little bit of their culture and talk with the people who live there. Of course, it's not always possible but I enjoy to keep trying.
