About living one year in the sharing economy…

Day 306: California here I come!

At least soon! In the end of the month I will go to Los Angeles for Airbnb Open which seems to be an awesome event! I really look forward to meeting other Airbnb hosts and get lots of inspiration on hosting and related things. There are speakers such as Brian Chesky, CEO of Airbnb, architect Frank Gehry and Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of Eat, Pray, Love. (Which is a book I was recommended to read when starting this project. It's about a woman in her thirties who is not happy with her current life situation and decides to do something completely different for a year. (In her case live four months in Italy, India and Bali respectively.) Yes, it sounds familiar... )

And then my plan is to to to San Fransisco which in many ways is the capital of the sharing economy. Lots of sharing platforms were created in the Bay Area and I hope it will give me the opportunity to try some services that I can't find at home.

And then hopefully I will have some time to go surfing. Trading the grey skies of November Sweden for the sunny days of southern California doesn't sound that bad...
