How many of you have heard of Airbnb? I have a friend, a former student, who is married to a military guy stationed in Italy. I’ve been so proud of the way she has embraced the opportunity. She and her husband when not deployed, or with her girlfriends when he was deployed, have explored as many countries in Europe as possible. Since my former student and her husband are expecting their first child soon, they wanted to take one more amazingly memorable trip. As a result, they spent the days before and through Christmas in London.
As I read her blog about the experience, I learned that she used the website for Airbnb to find a rent an apartment in London the met their budget and travel needs. Here is the website; check it out before you travel.
