If you haven’t heard of airbnb you may be missing out. The idea of disrupting the norm is happening every day. Airbnb is where people rent out their spare room, apartment or whole house. The website is the avenue for the sharing. We are pretty much going to rely on staying at airbnb while we are abroad. Here’s one example of our view of where we are staying in Rome:

The price is not bad either. We are paying less than $150 per night. That’s after all taxes and fees.
We think you benefit from staying with the locals. You typically interact with the person that owns the apartment or house. We used it in Ecuador and we’ve also used it a good bit in the United States.
