I get questions about my traveling habits more frequently that I would like to. So I’ve decided to write this post to clarify things (and then to send it to people who ask a lot of questions).
First of all: there are beautiful mornings waiting for you in every corner of every place you visit. That being said, there is also amazing people you can meet. It was in this spirit that I got involved with the Couchsurfing community back in 2011. Since then every time I travel with friends, we always choose couchsurfing first before anything else. We love meeting random people and also discover new places through their knowledge of the city. It’s a unique experience and completely changes how you travel.
But what happens if there’s no host available or all hostels are expensive?! You can always check Airbnb. Read the reviews beforehand and then book any type of room that you would like. Enjoy a pleasant stay in a local home for a more accessible price. Worth it.
That’s basically how I do it. To move around I usually trust planes, trains, buses and Blablacar.
How about you? How do you like to travel?
