One of the most enjoyable parts of our travel around the globe has been meeting all sorts of different people and getting to know them a little. More than anything else we have loved using Airbnb to stay with locals as often as we can.
Sometimes it’s just not possible due to price or location but our first thought is always to try and use Airbnb. We try and alternate between having our own private apartment and renting a bedroom. I explained what Airbnb was and answered a few questions about the experience in a previous post – What’s so good about Airbnb – so go have a look if you’re interested. Don’t bother if you’re not, obviously.
As we have travelled throughout the previous year and a half one thing has really hit home to both of us. It isn’t the places that you visit or the sights that you see, it’s the people that you meet along the way that make travelling so special.
These are all of the wonderful places that we stayed in North America.
I’ve left out the infamous Scumbag Lily and Slippery Luc as the least said about them the better! If you have no idea what I’m talking about then you better read The Vancouver Dilemma to find about about Scumbag Lily, and then Abandoned in Quebec for the story of Slippery Luc. Take a deep breath and make sure you’re sitting comfortably first though.
As I said after our trip to Australia and New Zealand, it has been such a pleasure staying with each and every one of these people in all of the various locations. It really is what has made our trip so special and we’re so grateful for the hospitality and friendliness of all of our hosts. We feel as if we arrived at each place as guests but left as friends and sincerely hope to stay in touch and see many of them again.
Which one is your favourite?
