It all started with a friend and a book! It was pretty serendipitous that I was reading a book about minimalism entitled The Joy of Less right around the time that I was planning a few trips and needed to downsize. I was planning this road trip to Canada and a trip down to South America so one of my friends recommended using Airbnb. As I looked through the website, I realized that I could use their service as both a guest as I travelled and a host as I was away from my home at Cedar Crest.
As I traveled, I received many more requests from travelers to stay at my place than I thought I would. As a guest, I got to visit really cool places, have fantastic hosts, and I had such a great experience that when I returned home, I wanted to allow other travelers that same experience.
Over the years, I’ve obtained seven more properties, made many connections both in and out the Acadiana area, and had some pretty awesome friends help in forming Cajun Hostel and making it a success!
