  • Sara in San Diego was the very first Superhost. She has been a host since 2008 and has learned a lot about making guests feel comfortable—like leaving cold brew in the fridge and child-proofing her home for families when they come to stay.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"I love hosting even more than I expected. With people coming from all over the world to stay at my house, it feels like traveling without having to leave my own home."
  • Kitty is one of the longest-standing Airbnb Superhosts. Since 2009, she's been welcoming guests to experience her unique mushroom dome cabin in Aptos, California. What guests seem to appreciate the most, besides the 400 hummingbirds that can be found buzzing around her 10-acre property, is getting to know Kitty and her dog, Elliot.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“I have met so many wonderful people from around the world that I would never have met if I hadn't had this opportunity with Airbnb.”
  • Toni is a Superhost in Athens, Greece who has hosted guests from 93 different countries this year alone. People come from all over the world to stay with Toni and be five minutes away from the ancient Acropolis Hill. What they don't expect is being able to grab a bite to eat at a restaurant owned by his mamá.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"My home is our home. It’s very important to be dedicated to what we do."
  • Trending destination 16: Uzbekistan.

Architectural wonders like the Registan, the heart of the ancient Silk Road city of Samarkand, only partly explain the fast-rising attraction to Uzbekistan. Improved transportation has made it easier to explore the country in full, from the mosques of Bukhara to Tashkent’s bazaar to the waterfalls of Gulkam Canyon.

He ate in the same open air; that is, his two only meals, breakfast and dinner: supper he never touched; nor reaped his beard; which darkly grew all gnarled, as unearthed roots of trees blown over, which still grow idly on at naked base, though perished in the upper verdure. But though his whole life was now become one watch on deck; and though the Parsee’s mystic watch was without intermission as his own; yet these two never seemed to speak—one man to the other unless at long intervals some passing unmomentous matter made it necessary. Though such a potent spell seemed secretly to join the twain; openly, and to the awe-struck crew, they seemed pole-like asunder. If by day they chanced to speak one word; by night, dumb men were both, so far as concerned the slightest verbal interchange. At times, for longest hours, without a single hail, they stood far parted in the starlight; Ahab in his scuttle, the Parsee by the mainmast; but still fixedly gazing upon each other; as if in the Parsee Ahab saw his forethrown.

“I will have the first sight of the whale myself,”—he said. “Aye! Ahab must have the doubloon! and with his own hands he rigged a nest of basketed bowlines; and sending a hand aloft, with a single sheaved block, to secure to the main-mast head, he received the two ends of the downward-reeved rope; and attaching one to his basket prepared a pin for the other end, in order to fasten it at the rail. This done, with that end yet in his hand and standing beside the pin, he looked round upon his crew, sweeping from one to the other; pausing his glance long upon Daggoo, Queequeg, Tashtego; but shunning Fedallah; and then settling his firm relying eye upon the chief mate, said,—”Take the rope, sir I give it into thy hands, Starbuck.” Then arranging his person in the basket, he gave the word for them to hoist him to his perch, Starbuck being the one who secured the rope at last; and afterwards stood near it. And thus, with one hand clinging round the royal mast, Ahab gazed abroad upon the sea for miles and miles and head.
