Ever have those, “why didn’t I think of that” moments? Of course you do! As Kevin McCallister once said, “We all do!” (If you know this reference we should be best friends or get married). This is how I think of Airbnb, the website that allows you to rent apartments that are already owned but not being used in the moment. So instead of staying in a hotel or hostel, it’s like staying in your own apartment, su casa es tu casa, literally. I used Airbnb for the first time while I was living in Barcelona and using it as a home base while I traveled. You can find awesome rates from $40 a night up to thousands a night if you stay in a pimpin’ penthouse. I decided to try it out in Buenos Aires while waiting for my new apartment (!) to be ready. I’d been living with a family as a part of my school program and my time was up there. So I booked the cute and fully equipped studio on sale for $40/night in Recoleta on Ayacucho y Melo with a pretty awesome view of the Paris of South America’s busy streets and beautiful buildings.
