Triip Peer to Peer Taipei Food Tour

On a recent trip to Taipei, which for me is largely about eating delicious foods, I scheduled a food tour with the peer to peer activities network Triip. After my research into sharing economy activities in Taiwan I was excited to find that Triip has a few offerings that are free! I selected a tour of the […]

Taiwan Peer to Peer Activities

Preparing for a short trip to Taiwan I did some research on potential peer-to-peer tours and activities, with a focus on food options because this is one of my favorite countries for delicious eating. I came up with a number of services that do have some good choices in Taipei and the surrounding area, though […]

Peer-to-Peer Tour of Nairobi Slums

Most people don’t put a slum tour on their list of activities to do while on vacation. But part of the value of peer-to-peer tour platforms is the creativity it offers people who can craft their own unique offerings. And I am always interested in seeing local life in the places I visit, so the Kibera slum tour […]

Sharing Economy Travel Businesses in Africa

On my recent trip to Kenya I spent some time searching around for peer-to-peer travel services that I might take advantage of in the region. One of my favorite activities companies, I Like Local, has a solid presence in Kenya. They offer some very interesting activities both in Nairobi and in the countryside, and it’s […]

Saving Money on Safaris in Kenya

This is not about peer-to-peer travel stuff, but I think it’s useful info that I couldn’t find online for myself. Hopefully this will be helpful to others. I will start by saying safaris are amazing. For me it’s like being in another world, with all these strange beasts walking around. I can’t recommend it enough. […]

Uber in Africa: Great for Tourists, Controversial for Drivers

Nairobi’s public transit consists of some very aggressive Matatu (bus) drivers in super congested traffic. While I’m always game to try local public transit, where […]

Your Local Cousin: Getting Advice from a Local for a Trip to Santiago

Last year I wrote about Your Local Cousin, a website devoted to helping travelers get custom advice from locals. Since that report the website was relaunched, new features added, and new locals engaged. So I decided it was time to try it out again when I booked a trip to Santiago for a week. I’d be […]

Santiago hosted home exchange (with points)

When I found a mistake fare to Santiago, Chile a few months ago I arranged for a home swap using points on Guest to Guest, one of my main go-to home exchange networks. Traveling alone, I found a few options for hosted home exchanges and picked the one that seemed like the best fit for my […]

Home Exchange on a Loch

After a few days in Edinburgh, we traveled north into the highlands where I had set up another home exchange, this time right on a loch (they don’t call them lakes in Scotland). This house was rather unusual looking, but promised gorgeous landscapes in an area known for it’s beauty. It seemed like a good […]
