Deaths on Airbnb: the risks of peer-to-peer services

I want to comment on a story that’s getting a lot of play in the media lately: Living and Dying on Airbnb. This is a very sad story, the writer’s father died while staying in an Airbnb cottage in Texas. It was a rope swing on a tree that killed him; the branch broke while he was […]

Airbnb Experiences in Colombia – the good stuff

I was going to write up a single post summing up my experiences in Colombia with Airbnb, but it got quite long. So I’m turning it into a two part series. Seriously, there’s that much to say. Here’s what I’m going to cover: Part 1 – Airbnb in Colombia – the good stuff (this post) Part […]

Peer-to-Peer Rental Lodging Metasearch Fails

I wrote a comparison of peer-to-peer lodging sites recently, proclaiming that I didn’t see a reason NOT to use them.

This last one comes from the many stories I’ve heard about how incredibly nice and hospitable Kiwis are to strangers traveling in their country. I’d love to visit New Zealand but I wonder if I would be […]
