Since extensively traveling Europe in 2015, I’ve accumulated plenty of experiences from staying in free accommodations, namely through Couchsurfing. I’ve already detailed the merits and drawbacks to it in a previous post, but I didn’t share with you some of the bizarre, hilarious, and just downright uncomfortable situations I’ve had through this site. The time is better than never to share one with you today!
Bonne année à tous!
Seriously, it’s hard to believe that it’s 2018 already. It sounds cliché to say, but time really flew this year. Maybe it’s a matter of getting older, that each year starts to blend together and makes it difficult to distinguish where one ends and the other begins. In any case, plenty of things have happened in 2017– the good, the bad, and the in-between.
It’s finally 2018!
As we head into a new year, we’re leaving another behind. Another 365 days are past us, and many of us are eager to wipe away past mistakes and start anew. With the first day of 2018 done, there’s plenty of optimism with the remaining 364 days to come.
I was tagged by Kaitlin from Kaitlin Versus Le Monde to do the Christmas Tag! A current TAPIF-er in Nancy, she writes about her life teaching abroad in France and the great adventures while traveling. I enjoy reading her posts, and I recommend that you check out her blog!
…that’s the question.
Especially for many of us travelers, it can be difficult to find accommodation in a new city or country. Hotels might be ridiculously expensive or hostels just don’t exist (particularly in small towns). It’s not just a matter of getting to your destination safely, but also having a roof over your head for the night (and no, that doesn’t mean sleeping in the train station!).
