Airbnb stories

by Maja Sotenšek

These short stories are just glimpses of passing encounters, written down in the hopes that they would help readers pass the time on their holidays or travels, on the train, or maybe while waiting at the airport. While we wait, let a path open before us towards a new life adventure ...
Airbnb is well-suited to the modern traveler: private but interesting apartments, affordable prices, making new friends are the complete opposite of the boring cookie-cutter hotels with more or less similar furnishings and the expected run-of-the-mill services. Soon, two years will have passed since I started hosting modern-day vagabonds in my home. I enjoy exploring the world, which is why I like hosting like-minded people. In the summer, my seaside ground-floor apartment with a small garden is always full of interesting guests from all over the world. Our relationships also vary wildly. Sometimes, we can immediately identify a kindred spirit, we instantly click, start chatting and share our stories; on other occasions, we keep our distance and only bump into each other on arrival and departure. Despite it all, we have amassed quite a few stories together and every single one has enriched me in some way or inspired me with new revelations.
