If you have read one of my past posts on “how-to” articles you know I have mixed feelings about there usefulness. The information in this how-to post though is very useful, because the trial-and-error period can be costly. The post tells those of use that want to see the world but have not a lot of dough how to get by cheap. I have heard about sites like global freeloaders and couchsurfing but was skeptical. It’s encouraging to hear a success story and see that its possible not to stay in hotels or hostels and get great tips from locals. Read this post if you are in to traveling the world and want to get the best possible value for your money.
