An Intentional Travelers Guide to Unconventional Budget Accommodations - Book cover

Travel more. Spend less. Life-changing experiences you can afford.

This book offers a fresh perspective on how to save your travel dollars. It'll help you crack the code to meaningful, impactful and low-cost trips by tackling one of the biggest trip expenses: lodging.

This book will help you to...
- Stretch your money - travel for a full month, at the same cost or less, of a typical one-week vacation
- Leverage the sharing economy to live rent-free in some of the most desirable destinations
- Skip the trial-and-error stage with house-sitting, work exchanges, Couchsurfing, and other platforms by applying lessons learned from case studies
- Arm yourself with check lists and practical, step by step guidance to get the most out of each accommodation experience
- Leave behind cookie cutter tours and standardized hotel experiences for more meaningful independent travel without sacrificing comfort and privacy

Author's Note: 

So much of the budget travel advice today is about how to save a few bucks here and there. Suggestions either include indulgent vacation packages that aren't that affordable or sharing dorm rooms, sometimes in sketchy parts of town. Hostels aren't necessarily bad, but there are way more options out there that most travelers overlook.

With more than seven years of living abroad and long-term travel, my husband and I have discovered a different way to do budget travel. An unconventional way. It opens doors to more meaningful, transformational experiences with locals while saving money and allowing you to travel longer and dig deeper in each place.
