Have you ever tried Airbnb, the site where you can browse and rent houses, apartments, rooms (actually even boats and treehouses!) in 192 countries? For our trip to San Francisco last weekend, we opted to rent an apartment through Airbnb instead of a hotel, so we could pretend we were locals for the weekend.
I was admittedly a little nervous (would the sheets be clean? would it feel strange to be in someone else's place? the answers were "yes" and "no," respectively) but we loved it and can't wait to try it again. We discovered a new-to-us neighborhood (NOPA), went on a few runs in the neighborhood (the panhandle to Golden Gate Park was just a few blocks away), and it was all so easy.
When we arrived there were a few boxes from Rent the Runway, which was so fun! My favorite items were the Opening Ceremony shift dress, Art Deco statement earrings, and jeweled cuff (see below).
We are already dreaming of our next trip and I couldn't help but browse Airbnb a few times this week. Doesn't this Paris studio look dreamy? And this Buenos Aires apartment would be amazing to rent with a group of friends. Have you tried Airbnb? Where are you dreaming of visiting?
