WHY WE LOVE THIS COMMUNITY

Hi there! We’re Erin and Jay, and we’re so happy you’re visiting bnbNomad. We discovered Airbnb in the spring of 2017 when we embarked on a nomadic adventure exploring North America. With our lanky pup Odin in tow, we lived for a year in Airbnbs, working remotely during the day and soaking in our surroundings by night. From New England farms to Southwest cabins, our generous hosts and their distinctive homes made our adventures more incredible than we could have imagined. As avid Airbnb travelers, bnbNomad is our small way of giving back to a community we love. We share the hosting tricks we adore as guests, feature homes and destinations from our journeys, and give travelers around the world an inside look at the unique perspective Airbnb has to offer.

ERIN

Wife, extrovert, early-riser. I’m the humanist and the optimist. I studied poetry in college, turned into a data analyst during the course of my first office job, and now own a small business called Data Dozen that teaches folks how to visualize their data. In college, I spent a year in Buenos Aires, Argentina and Barcelona, Spain bumbling through each day with mediocre Spanish and a gleeful grin on my face. When the year ended, I was convinced that all my long term traveling had concluded. When we discovered Airbnb, it felt like a long-closed door reopened. Our Airbnb adventures have reenergized our lives in so many wonderful ways.

JAY

Husband, techie, night-owl. I’m the engineer and the level-headed pragmatist who balances out my lovely wife’s unending belief that we can get 48 hours of work done in half a day. I develop software for a midwestern tech firm and after several years on site, I arranged to work remotely full time. As a kid, I was fortunate enough to spend my summers at a camp in Minnesota, and as I got older, we would take backpacking and canoeing trips throughout North America. These outdoor adventures were my understanding of travel. Our Airbnb trips have allowed me to return to many of those memorable spots and introduce them to my family.

ODIN

Dog, protector, runner. He’s a mostly well-behaved, always well-intentioned pup whose life became infinitely more interesting as an Airbnb resident. New smells, new spaces, new walks, and much more time with his people. He’s now four years old, a lanky black lab mix with one white foot and a lone albino toenail. His name, so carefully bestowed on adoption day, turned out to be rather ironic given that he spooks at the slightest wavering of a plastic bag. He loves off-leash adventures, treats of any kind, and any Airbnb farmstay, especially when there’s another dog around to show him the ropes.
