Airbnb is an American company which operates an online marketplace and hospitality service for people to lease or rent short-term lodging including holiday cottages, apartments, homestays, hostel beds, or hotel rooms, to participate in or facilitate experiences related to tourism such as walking tours, and to make reservations at restaurants. The company does not own any real estate or conduct tours; it is a broker which receives percentage service fees in conjunction with every booking. Like all hospitality services, Airbnb is an example of collaborative consumption and sharing. The company has over 4 million lodging listings in 65,000 cities and 191 countries and has facilitated over 260 million check-ins.

As most of you know, I recently went on a cruise and while I was there, I met Donna Clark. I just had to interview her for the show to talk about Cruise Critic! Donna doesn't work for this website...she just thinks it's pretty awesome and so do I! And no, they are not paying me to say this! (But they should...right? Ha!)
http://CruiseCritic.com is the most extraordinary place to go to find volumes of information and helps keep you cruising in retirement.

They didn’t talk about what Rob is doing in retirement. But they did have a hilarious discussion about his experiences as the Captain or First Mate of the various ships he has worked on.
He tells of experiences like towing oil rigs, and doing duty as the medical officer. There were burials at sea, and a story about what happens when you are shaving without any clothes on while travelling in rough seas. Henry challenges us to guess how that turned out. There were plenty of other stories but you know how colorful a captain of the ship can be, so Henry couldn't air those stories. Ha!

John's an interesting guy...In the past, he was a stunt man appearing on shows such as Days of our lives, Get Shorty, and Will and Grace just to name a few.
Now, on top of being a cruise director, he wrote a book called The World's Hardest Music Trivia. John was doing music trivia on his ship and he came up with the idea to write a book about it. The book is not just a trivia book, but has a lot of fun behind the scenes information on music from the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's.

Jerry says, "Contrary to what a lot of financial advisors say about how much money you need to retire, I tell people to look at retirement from the opposite direction. When you're near retirement age, what money you have is what you have and there's not much that they can do to change the amount. So look at what you have and decide what kind of retirement you can have. The good news is that when it comes to retiring and living full time in a RV, the price of RV you have doesn't have much to do with how happy you are in retirement."
