You may of seen on my Instagram account that while Jenna and I were recently travelling through Portugal visiting friends, family and enjoying the sites we also pit stopped in some areas and used Air BNB as a home from home while travelling
We had looked around at various hotels but travelling with my daughter Bionda we wanted a bit more flexibility on where we stayed and to have a bit more space. 
The thing we liked most about using Air BNB was that you can choose how much you want to spend on your stay. It can suit all types from a single traveller looking to meet people on a pit stop and therefore using a private room in a shared house to a large family wanting a room for everyone! The filter function on the website means you can dictate area, price, room type and what elements are must have (e.g dishwasher and wifi etc).

We used Air BNB to stay in Porto and in Lisbon and the choice was great. We decided to get somewhere that was easy for us to walk into town and somewhere we could park the car. Since we were only there for a short time we wanted to ensure we would have to do a lot of travelling when we arrived to get to the places we needed to go. It also meant we could cook our own breakfast and eat at home if we needed to.

Take a look at the two locations we choose for our stay.



Overall we were really happy with our Air BNB finds and having a home from home made travelling life much easier for us. We will definitely be using them again on our next adventures, in fact the Air BNB locations might influence where we next travel!
