Airbnb, inspiring spaces around the world

When you go on holidays, the 2 main budget are generally the trip to reach your destination and the accomodation. For the first point, I already gave you my tips for finding cheap flights  for the accomodation, there is Airbnb !

How did I discover Airbnb ?

In february 2011, I went couchsurfing on Alex’s couch in Long Beach, California, and we talked about travelling for a  few hours. He talks to me about an awesome website where you can rent some super nice big apartment for super cheap, and that he had used it during his recent trip to Paris. It seems a bit idyllic, it might be a scam. Thereupon he adds that he rented his room in Long Beach via the same site and in the end he earn more money than he spent! What a good deal! So I sign on Airbnb.fr more by curiosity than entirely convinced. A few months later, I’m leaving to California for a month and I want to rent my apartment through this site. Everything went well and I collect enough money to fully fund my stay in California!

What is Airbnb?

This website is a rental apartment between individuals, with great guarantees for both the host and the guest. As a host, if your guest burns your apartment, Airbnb help you financially to repair the damages. As a guest, if your host make a last minute cancelation, Airbnb help you find a plan B, or Plan C, or Plan D  super fast thanks to its huge community (I wish everything was that easy in my life!)

  1. I usually do not write a bunch of comments, however
    after browsing a ton of responses on this page Airbnb, inspiring spaces around the world | JuliaChou, blog voyage.
    I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright.
    Is it simply me or does it look like like some of these
    responses come across as if they are coming from brain dead people?
    😛 And, if you are writing at other social sites, I would
    like to keep up with you. Could you make a list of all of your social community pages like your Facebook page,
    twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  2. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said « You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear. » She put the shell to her
    ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off
    topic but I had to tell someone!

  3. Fantastic post but I was wondering if you could write a litte more on this subject?
    I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit
    further. Thak you!
