Hi! This is Nora Dunn, from The Professional Hobo.com - I travel full-time in a financially sustainable way, and I've been doing it since 2007.
One of my best secrets for traveling on a dime is to find free accommodation! You can get free accommodation in a number of different ways, but as you'd probably expect, nothing is truly for free.
Instead, you volunteer your time in trade for your accommodation, and sometimes even food and incidental expenses are covered too!
I've painted murals, milked goats, designed marketing plans, cleaned cottages, house-sat, walked dogs, led eco-treks, run commercial kitchens, and taught conversational English - all in trade for my accommodation, and in some cases my meals as well.
By volunteering in trade for your accommodation, you can stretch your travel dollar, stay away a little longer, and possibly have a deeper travel experience by getting that little extra bit off the tourist trail.
Cheers, from Nora Dunn, The Professional Hobo.
