As we prepare for Airbnb to become a public company, we want to institutionalize our commitment to hosting, and our investment in the host community

Keywords: community , company information

I am thrilled to announce that we are creating the Airbnb Host Endowment. The Host Endowment is intended to provide support for our host community, now and for generations to come. We plan to seed the endowment with 9.2 million shares from Airbnb. We will start to invest the endowment in the host community once the value of the endowment exceeds $1 billion. 

The endowment will provide support in areas including education, financial resources, and much more. With the Airbnb Host Endowment, we want you to share in our success – not merely at a single moment in time, but for as long as Airbnb exists.

While travel might look a little different in 2021, future adventures are keeping travelers inspired, with 36 percent of respondents saying they daydream about travel daily or more, increasing to 47 percent amongst people who work from home

Our research also shows that despite the uncertainty that continues to pervade people’s lives, the more they stay at home, the more the thought of getting out gives them confidence in the future. When asked how planning for a future trip makes them feel, the most selected answer by respondents was simply: hopeful.

I’m sharing a few photos (okay, maybe a bit more than a few), and I could give you lots of tips and advice about where to go, what to do, or how to behave while there. But since I don’t like making my posts too long, I will list some of the wonderful things we did, and places we visited. Ask me any questions you’d like in the comments and I will be happy to answer them.

CANDY LOVE

Having New Year’s resolutions is different from fulfilling them. Let me take you on a journey of the greatest resolution for 2020. Investing in adrenaline experiences, travel more, meet new people and do more challenges was one of the resolutions I made.

So yeah, Mountain slayers Uganda a group of people who love to slay all mountains, forests, islands, rocks and whatever as long as it has walking and climbed in it. I came across a poster with Semiliki Slay and oh my excitement kicked me, called my partner-in-hiking we paid up and got ready for the hike.

So yeah your guess is right as…

Looking for someone travelling to Vietnam soon

Zolas Blog

Hi! I hope this is the right subreddit to post something like this.

I’m looking for someone, preferably European or from the US who is going to go to Vietnam soon.

I went to Vietnam with my SO a few years back and when going through Hội An, we went to a boutique and I got a sleeping mask with a cute illustration on it for her. She forgot it on a plane ride recently and despite all our efforts to try and get it back it was lost and probably thrown away.

It had a lot of sentimental value to her so she was pretty bummed. I managed to find the store and the brand of the mask with a little luck but it looks like they are only in Vietnam. Their online store is listing the mask I’m talking about and it’s fairly cheap (about 5€) but the…

Pins in Maps

Bus travel in the US gets a bad rep. Often for good reason. Yes, it’s super cheap (especially if you’re organised and plan your trip so far in advance you can get $1 fares) and the buses now have power outlets and wifi, but there are a fair few disadvantages to it too. In the couple of weeks I’ve been out here, I’ve ridden seven buses and have had the following experiences:

– A megabus with a broken thermostat. I can cope with the heat. The other 81 people on the bus couldn’t. Add in horrendous traffic and you have hours, HOURS of complaining. I think we quickly established the driver could do nothing, but the whining still continued. Your complaining is like vomiting. It may make you feel better, but everyone else hates you.

– A megabus that was supposed to depart at 6.00am according to my ticket and…

The Difference Between Travel and Vacation

friends, local, locals,adventure, experience, alternative, alternatives

No one knows a location better than a local. Instead of spending all of your time in a tourist-heavy area, allocate time to spend where the locals hang out. Nine times out of ten you will discover something about the place that few people who don’t live there get to see.

Curious Artifact

So many people use vacation and travel interchangeably, and that is perfectly okay! However, if you wanted to get nitpicky, there is a difference, and it can mean the difference between relaxing in a new place to having the experience of a lifetime.

If you want to lounge on the beach, eat curated meals in a fancy restaurant, stay at a highly popular hotel or all of the above, it will undoubtedly be an incredible vacation. BUT if you truly want to see the world, experience how others live, and immerse yourself in a new culture you might have to forego those and throw them out the window for something completely different, but even more incredible.

You might be thinking, “but…Emma? I don’t know how to travel. I’ve only ever vacationed. What do I do?” Good news. I’m here to help.

Go Off the Beaten Track
