Ultimate Guide To Find A Place To Stay When Travelling And Adventure

For adventure lovers, their backpack is always ready. As soon as they feel the urge they just pack their bags and leave for an adventure of a lifetime. However, while doing so they generally tend to ignore the accommodation aspect. Since money is mostly a constraint finding a place to stay after reaching there can be a tough task. However, we are going to guide you in finding a place to stay when traveling without burning a hole in your pockets. Read on.

Homestays

If you want a bigger villa or private bungalow for your disposal you can look for a homestay as well. There are many websites that cater to this need in particular. Again checking the reviews would be helpful especially if you are finicky about cleanliness and convenience. You can also check the location as you would not want to be at a lonely place with nothing or no one around for help.

APARTMENT RENTALS

You know that you have to stay at a particular location for some amount of time. It would be wise if you look around for someone who is willing to find accommodation or rent an apartment to you for that time. In this case, you get a home-like treatment and might even get a chance to have your meals there. However, before accepting any deal just check a review of that person from his neighbors or online if he does that frequently. You would not want to get trapped in any kind of a mess.

Couch surfing

There are other travelers like you who are on the run too and would want to share the accommodation they have rented. This trend is called couch surfing and you too can take advantage of the same. Just look around to see if someone else is willing to share. The biggest advantage here is that you get to meet people who have the same tastes as you. Eventually, you might get to make some worthy traveling partners for life.

Religious housing

If you are traveling to a place that has a religious fervour base to it then you can hope to find accommodations in monasteries and other religious places. However, this is helpful only if you have your other sleeping essentials in hand with you. Once you get a roof for the night you just get to doze off and then leave in the morning. Also, there are hostel dormitories which would be happy to host you but you might have to pay small fees for staying there.

Conclusion

Leaving for your next adventure trip need not be a tough decision to take. By following the above tips you can easily get free or cheap accommodation for the night or for a few days stay. Make sure you have done your bit of searching around before signing up for any particular place. At times the reality of a place is revealed only when you stay there for some time. Rushing into a place which has no worthy credentials may prove risky for you so be careful.

Sure, Tim Durtschi and Colter Hinchliffe might have taken their Ford Ranger to the ends of the Earth in their latest film , but for some true off-roading, check out this rock crawling action. The real question, though? RC or real-life? What do you think? Either way, that's quite impressive. RELATED: Colter Hinchliffe and Tim Durtschi's New Film

Matthias Giraud. Erik Pütsep Photo. Matthias Giraud is going 50 miles an hour when he slams into the rock spire that juts out from the Pointe d’Areu; a peak just northwest of Mont Blanc. An impact at such speed, even within the protection of modern cars, is invariably catastrophic and likely fatal. Hanging from his parachute like a puppet attached to strings, Giraud has no such protection. He stops moving the instant his body makes contact with the rock, and free fall is interrupted

Alex Honnold Got His Lead Card Pulled Back in the Day

It shouldn't come as a surprise that Alex Honnold has never been one to follow the rules. Honnold rolls to the beat of his own drum, and he’s been doing it since long before he was a climbing superstar. His original climbing gym, Pipeworks in Sacramento, just shared this gem from the past. Apparently Honnold was caught skipping clips on the gym’s main roof. Nicky, a staff member from Pipeworks, wasn’t amused and pulled his lead card. Thankfully, the experience didn’t deter Honnold from
