This year I had my first experience with AirBnB and it was surprisingly good. I don’t know why I’m so surprised. Well actually I do. Budget travelling scares the bejeez out of me. I’m not a travel snob (well maybe just a touch) but I’m much more of a 4* kinda girl nowadays. Actually the use of “girl” is a stretch and so maybe I should let that go…along with 2* disasters, grim hotels and dodgy cheap holidays! Which is exactly my point. Even on a budget I want my holiday to be a holiday, not an angst ridden few nights in hell hole worthy of a bad tv show.
Luckily my most recent budget holiday to Cyprus was as far from that as you could image. Yes it was a girls trip and yes, it had all the hallmarks of one (note the strawberry daiquiris are lethal, contain way too much sugar but taste sensational). But it also had much more class and sophistication (depending on which photos you look at).
