Humans are social creatures. Our inherent need for communication and community is, on a fundamental, essential to our survival, and during times like these where sociability is at an all-time low, it’s important for us to find alternative avenues for appeasement. Luckily, Airbnb has created a centralized portal where its hosts and interested parties can once again come together for pure human interaction, storytelling, and exploration.

Airbnb understands the struggles associated with quarantine, as well as the predicament, and precarious position, that each of its hosts is placed in due to a lack of tourist interest. To quell the onset of confined complications, as well as provide an opportunity for individuals to connect, support, and educate, the company has released “Online Experiences” — a virtual hosting platform that allows users to explore their surroundings, near or distant, while supporting the portal’s creators. Head into a cello player’s living room for a live, personalized performance, learn about the history of your favorite cocktail or liquor, and pay a visit to the wandering canine companions of Chernobyl, all from the comfort of your own home. For more information, head to Airbnb’s website, where hundreds of unique experiences continue to materialize each day.
