I have been making trips yearly now and have always used hotels in all the trips.. My second daughter introduced me to airbnb as she has been using it for all her accommodation in Europe and America. I like to make more trips but currently managing one overseas trip a year. Places I have enjoyed include Plitvice Lakes and Dubrovnic in Croatia, Barcelona in Spain, Lyon in France and Prague in Czech Republic.
I prefer walking the city than go on big group tours.
I am sure I make a good guest as my wife and I are clean, tidy and easy going people. We look after all peoples properties with extreme care as we like others to treat ours the same as well.
