AirBnB

Let strangers invade your home (in a good way).

If you’ve ever wanted to stay at Giraffe Manor in Kenya or in a cave in Grenada, Spain then you’ve likely heard of AirBnB, which lets people rent out their place to travellers. But have you thought of handing over your keys and becoming a host? I started hosting on AirBnB last year to travellers from around the world, from NYC bankers to Wiz Khalifa’s producer. It’s a great way to meet new and interesting people that you wouldn’t be exposed to otherwise. AirBnB has taken social to the next level by turning your networks into a new aged passport, giving you the ability (and piece of mind) to verify identities. This site, and mobile app, has been a great way to show off our great city and explore other cities like a local.
