Peer to Peer Travel News – November 2016

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 November.

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’ve written before about the hassles of finding public wifi while traveling, and I highlighted Fon, a company that is trying to make wifi sharing a thing.
