Airbnb continue their Made Possible by Hosts campaign with this advert titled “Thank God I’m A Country Boy”. In this instalment we see pictures of a family enjoying a break at a restored farmhouse outside Eumundi, Queensland, Australia.
Australian photographer Lisa captures it all showing that the family had two goals in mind: open space for her young boys to roam free and some time well spent in nature. From running the green rolling hills by day to evening campfires under the stars, the boys enjoyed a true taste of country living at Sarah’s farmhouse.
