For three years, I’ve written the same words on Airbnb’s reservation field that says “tell your host why you’re in town.”
Thinking one day it might help, I’ve always written: “visiting PR firms.” After requesting a cool penthouse apartment in New Delhi, India, the host immediately replied his sister-in-law owned a successful firm and he’d introduce us. He did – and spent an evening in his apartment studying my contacts, helping organize my meetings, my pitches – even my business plan.
I found Delhiites fascinating, friendly and especially helpful when I got lost in the city. None more than Nikhill.
