Bum Trips on Air BnB

Notice: this is not a sweet puff piece about the joys of Airbnb. As such, I expect to be banned from Airbnb for life in the near future. And I can’t say I care. I write hoping to encourage people to use the many other alternatives. I’m not a great fan of the sharing economy, until it regulates itself into making the experiences good, instead of nightmares.
