My purpose for AIRBNB is different than most. I used to travel a lot and I missed the company of traveling people until AIRBNB. It is wonderful to have travelers in my life again. In addition, my children and grandchildren have little time for me, so AIRBNB is my social life. It is funny, that I can't get my children to stay with me for free and yet people are willing to pay me for just that opportunity. I'm not as lonesome as I used to be with all my traveling friends from AIRBNB. Thank you, AIRBNB! Patricia
