10 Airbnbs for your Next European Vacation

This weekend I was browsing Airbnbs for a trip to Europe and found myself deep in the rabbit hole of possibilities. I’m actually embarrassed to admit how much time I spent online looking through options on a beautiful Sunday morning (Insert grimace emoji)! If you’re not a millennial the idea of staying in a stranger’s home may seem odd, but if you do the proper research I think you’ll be surprised how many fabulous finds there are and how much…
