Hello from Andy
Andy Steves hasn't fallen far from the tree. From his early days tagging along with his guidebook-writing father, Rick Steves on family trips across the continent, Andy soon saw Europe as his playground. After the opportunity to study abroad in Rome in 2008, he's since started a travel company, WSA Europe for students abroad in Europe, pitched ABC's Shark Tank, written an award-winning guidebook, and is a podcast host discussing travel, entrepreneurship and the digital nomad lifestyle.

My Airbnb hosting story started in Prague, where my friend Taylor and I rented out several apartments with the intent of subletting them out to short-term visitors. Of course it doesn’t take long in Prague for there to be problems with the neighbors. Accusations of drunk guests passed out in the stairwell, things falling from windows and lost guests knocking on the wrong door soon became commonplace. Needless to say those apartments didn’t last forever, but they were beautiful!
