A home wherever you go

A traveller needs a place to stay wherever he/she goes.  If you are following my post, you must be knowing that I am a big fan of couch surfing and I will always be.

But there is one more option that gives you a home wherever you travel. It is called AirBnB. Many of you must be already heard of it. Airbnb is a website/community that offers unique accommodations around the world. Note the word “unique accommodation”.  Unlike Couchsurfing one has certain options to choose and also one has to pay. ( unlike Couchsurfing )

But at times, every traveller would be willing to spend some money to experience some unique experiences. Who wouldn’t pay to live a day or two in an igloo, or to live in a tree house with a breath taking view, or to live in an ancient fort like a prince or princess, if all these are offered at a very reasonable price!

Yes, you heard that right. The unique accommodation on offer can be an igloo, a tree house, a fort, a yacht, a shipping container, a van, a super luxurious house, a palace; it can be anything. If you would like you can check my wishlist here.

They have some free joining bonus for both you and me, if you are joining through this link and get  ₹1,500 + travel credit. You will get this credits, so that you can immediately start booking  an accommodation anywhere in the world.

There are some awesome accomodations in India as well. Like the palaces in Rajastan, Houses with amazing view of Himalayas, Camp sites in High altitude areas, Secluded palace in the forest and many more. The travel will be a different experience with Airbnb.

I have a friend from Brazil who tried Airbnb in Fort Kochin, Kerala. I went to say hi to him. The place was neat, not the cheapest available option though. But it was definitely a different experience. I am itching to try Airbnb during my next trip.

I hope you will also start making your own wish lists in Airbnb. It will be more like a bucket list to inspire you. So plan a trip and not take it. If you are taking it, even better 🙂

    • oh that is cool. But never read any CS experience, maybe I have missed it. Yea, airbnb can be very authentic experience too. But its more like your stay at Vasco.

      • For scuba diving holiday is much nicer to stay at a dive resort or resort that is next to dive center..so for the next holiday I will not use bed and breakfast 🙁
        Maybe on the next city trip holiday 😉

        • aah… why are you making me jealous!!! :p
          Enjoy the dive trip 🙂
          Well AirBnB is a bit different from usual BnB hotels. I hope you are aware of the difference 🙂

          • oh, i thought it is sort of bed and breakfast in the sense that you stay over at someone’s house and if you get lucky then you can have the whole apartment..I have been staying in “hotel” bed and breakfast like that before, not from airbnb website but from local websites like in Cuba or UK or homeaway.nl (but the homeaway more for apartment or houses/villa not room so more privacy..) I thought it is similar concept..or am I wrong?

          • Its just that if you have a cool home or property, you can list it in that site, and I can book if I am coming to your place and I like your home. And I will pay the price that you set in that site. You can find rooms, villas, even palaces 😉

      • No no novelty places yet just really nice accomodations. I’ve been able to save a lot of money using it. I try couchsurfig and after months of trying finally got a place to stay one night in texas so im not completely sold on the couchsurfing idea yet.

        • haha.. at times it happens with couch surfing! But it is cool once you are lucky with getting a reply from the host. But Airbnb you are always sure to get a room as it involves money 😀
