I love staying in unique Airbnbs. Whether or not they’re in Texas.

It’s such a great way to travel and get to see new parts of the world. The hosts usually put their own unique spin and personality into each rental.

Many times I’ve stayed at an Airbnb that came with a guidebook written by the host on things to do, eat, and see nearby.

You don’t get that personal touch at a hotel! The guidebook is just one of the many personal touches (good) host add in their rentals.

So I don’t know about you all but even when I’m not staying in cool Airbnbs, I’m usually browsing to see what new adventure I can start planning next.

Which is why I have an embarrassing amount of unique places saved on Airbnb. I figured it was a bit selfish to keep them to myself though.
