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 […]

Peer to Peer Travel News – August

These days new sharing economy travel companies launch every week, and I sometimes discover established businesses that I had missed. All of these get added to my spreadsheet of sharing economy travel services. Here’s the summary for August.

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 […]

Edinburgh Home Exchange with Points (and Castles Everywhere)

About nine months ago I found a really great deal on flights to London. So I planned a two week vacation for two, to some unspecified place that we’d get to from London. Six months ago I decided it was time to make a choice about where we’d go, not because I like to plan my […]

Busses are the Best Ridesharing

If you support the concept of ridesharing, where random strangers open up their vehicles to take on riders who are going the same route, it seems obvious you should also like public transportation. It’s nice to share a car so that all four seats are used. But it’s even more efficient to share a 50 seat bus. […]

Arranging a home exchange for Santiago

I recently came across a $350 round trip airfare to Santiago. Of course I had to jump on it as I’ve always wanted to visit Chile. Unfortunately the dates didn’t work out so that weather would be appropriate to visit Patagonia, so Torres del Paine will have to wait for another trip. But I’m excited to […]

Peer to Peer Travel News – July

More new sharing economy travel companies have launched recently, and I discovered a few established businesses to add to my spreadsheet of sharing economy travel services. Here’s the summary for July. Transportation news Google entered the ridesharing business with Waze Carpool. Finally a big player in the U.S. tackles real ridesharing! Although right now this is just for carpooling […]

Free Tours of Narita for your Tokyo Airport Entertainment

Following up on my fabulous 9 hour overnight layover in Tokyo at the start of a recent trip, I had another long layover on my return trip, this time landing and departing from Narita airport. The city of Narita is funding free transit tours for people with some time to kill at the airport. I didn’t want […]

New Website Design

The new site it up and running! I’ve been working with a fabulous web developer to create a better site design: cleaner, easier to use and navigate (if you need to hire someone, I’m happy to provide referrals). There are still a few more things I want to implement, but check out the site and let […]
