    Default I'm loving AirBnB!!!

    Maddy and I leave less than three weeks for a week long photography trip of New Mexico. Five of the six nights, we are staying at an AirBnB. The total trip for 6 nights and a rental car is less than $500.
    One of the nights, we are staying in a bus at a hippy commune, up in the mountains. No running water, solar powered lights, etc. My wife is freaking out, thinking we gonna join a cult, listen to "Helter Skelter", and go on a killing spree.
    Funny thing is, when I first contacted the host, I asked if here rooms had a/c, not realizing it gets down to the mid-50's (12 degC) at night.

    I did 4 nights in Toronto for $140 total - not $140 per night. It was excellent.

    On a side note, I just stopped working for them. If you ever look at Airbnb listings and see a note on the bottom left of the photograph that says "Airbnb Verified" then that picture was taken by someone like me who was an independent contractor with them. I've done over 500 listings in Halifax over the last 6 years. Just recently they told me they decided to go another route with their photographs and cancelled my contract. Not sure if they are just cutting back or of they are actually changing up their processes.
