SHOW NOTES

On this podcast we take our friend Marit on a British Columbia Road Trip.  She has never stayed in an Airbnb and on this trip we make her stay in four. Wait until you hear her reaction.  We stay in a charming and quaint Airbnb called “The Nest” in London-like Victoria, then continue up Vancouver Island to the bustling port town of Nanaimo.  Here our Airbnb was located in the middle of a unique hostel.  We take a ship over to the mainland and head due east to the wine region of the Okanagan Valley where we enjoy a gorgeous Airbnb and sample the wine of the region at a winery with a pyramid.  Our last stop is the beautiful city of Vancouver.  We stayed in a city apartment with views of the bay and Olympic Village..
