MICHAEL PHILLIPS

No man prefers to sleep two in a bed. In fact, you would a good deal rather not sleep with your own brother. I don’t know how it is, but people like to be private when they are sleeping. And when it comes to sleeping with an unknown stranger, in a strange inn, in a strange town, and that stranger a harpooneer, then your objections indefinitely multiply.

Nor was there any earthly reason why I as a sailor should sleep two in a bed, more than anybody else; for sailors no more sleep two in a bed at sea, than bachelor Kings do ashore. To be sure they all sleep together in one apartment, but you have your own hammock, and cover yourself with your own blanket, and sleep in your own skin.

RECENT FEEDBACK

For with the charts of all four oceans before him, Ahab was threading a maze of currents and eddies, with a view to the more certain accomplishment of that monomaniac thought of his soul.

INSTAGRAM FEED

The more I pondered over this harpooneer, the more I abominated the thought of sleeping with him. It was fair to presume that being a harpooneer, his linen or woollen, as the case might be, would not be of the tidiest.

  • Superhost Jay’s elegant apartment is perched on the coast of Yeong-do, the island that forms one corner of the city. If it’s your first time here, get your bearings by climbing Jangsan, a mountain just outside of town with views of the whole area. Once you come down, it’s up to you whether to spend your time deep inside this tub or deep inside a bowl of bibim milmyeon, the spicy local noodle specialty.

  • The Bahamas’ natural gifts go far beyond sun, sea, and sand. As part of The Bahamas Sabbatical, you’ll explore local botanical traditions with farmers and gardeners on the island of Eleuthera. You’ll discover the healing properties of native plants, learn to make bush tea and other remedies, and even help conduct workshops to promote these deep-rooted traditions.

Apply by 11:59pm EST on February 18, 2020. Terms and conditions apply.
  • This studio in a 17th-century building across from the Duomo is for solo travelers only, but please don’t do anything rash. Instead of breaking up with your partner to come here, consider booking it for them after you’ve had your turn. Dani, your Superhost, designed the place for creative solitude, but you’ll hardly feel alone. Just ask and she’ll point you to her favorite walks and restaurants away from the crowds.

  • Wake up with the roosters and you can be on Corong Corong Beach by sunrise. Judex, your host, is happy to help you plan adventures all around the Bacuit Archipelago. One idea: kayak across the bay to Cadlao Island for a day of snorkeling and exploring.

  • There’s no such thing as a bad view of Lake Como, but Cristina’s bright apartment has one of the best. Midway between Como and Bellagio, the place is far enough from the crowds to let you soak up the beauty in peace. But it’s also centrally located—a short walk takes you to a pier where you can catch ferries that’ll take you all around the lake.

  • Be one of 5 volunteers to join Airbnb for a once in a lifetime opportunity to help preserve the traditions and become part of the Bahamian community.
  • The Bahamas’ marine ecosystem is one of the most diverse in the world. Keeping it that way takes a lot of work. As a member of The Bahamas Sabbatical, you’ll team up with lifelong local divers and fishermen in Exuma to learn ethical fishing practices that protect both the ecosystem and the local fishing industry.

Apply by 11:59pm EST on February 18, 2020. Terms and conditions apply.
  • Superhost Gonzalo put his own slant on the tiny home by building this unique little refuge. Just off the Carretera Austral—the road that snakes through some of northern Patagonia’s most spectacular places—it’s an ideal spot to catch your breath. Gonzalo can also help you decide where to eat in town (20 minutes away) and where to go next.
