Where do we stay as we travel around the world? How do we keep our costs to a minimum with our accommodations? In this episode, we discuss the differences between Airbnb, hostels, hotels, and WorkAways. You will hear about crying babies and squealing guinea pigs. We talk about the Lisbon Hustle and drinking with a star from Narcos. We then answer a couple of follower questions including how we stay in touch with family and what technologies we use to do so. Everyone gets homesick; we talk about how we cope with it on the road. We wrap up with our first ‘Shame on That’ session where we screw up and tell people that they are ugly. Oops!
