How do you decide to skip a side trip on vacation? While staying in Barcelona I was planning to take a trip to Valencia for a day. Known for it’s architecture, beaches and paella, I’ve heard it’s a fun place to see. I also wanted to try out ridesharing in Spain (this was early in my […]
I know I’ve written about this a few times now, but I’m still very much surprised by all the friends I’m making through house swapping and general sharing economy travel activities. This might be partly due to the incredible friendliness of people in Spain. But by the end of our recent trip we had more offers for tour […]

With ridesharing in Spain I saved a lot of money and often saved time, enjoyed conversations with interesting locals, and got […]
I’ve been carrying around these shoes since leaving San Francisco. They were delivered to my house a few weeks before I left, in a size much too large for my feet. This is my first foray into peer to peer delivery, yet another aspect of the sharing economy relevant to travelers. I posted my trip to […]
