How To Travel Without A Plan I love arriving in a completely foreign country without preparation or a plan. The uncertainty is exhilarating and the sense of freedom is unrivaled. It was in this style that I arrived, for the first time, in El Salvador at 1:30 AM last Wednesday. You might be thinking, as my family did “Why in the world would you go to a country as dangerous as El Salvador without knowing where you are going to stay or anything about the country? Are you nuts?”

Writing Questions Answered Anonymous asked: My mc has a crush on a guy who’s an adult film actor. I’ve written the first chapter but it seems like he’s just lusting after him. Runaway Retreats: Hideouts, Cheap Long-term Accommodation, and Good Eats One of my favorite things about backpacking the world is finding cool locations. I love discovering secret spots where I can hide out for a few months. My ideal retreats are where accommodation is free or super cheap, where the sun is always shining and a beach or mountain lake is not far away, where you can order delicious pork sandwiches on demand, and where the French government will pay you 500 Euro a month to hangout. They are these spots that’s I covet and have kept secret until now. In response to reader’s requests, I have decided to start a new category on The Runaway Guide called Runaway Retreats (yes I have a thing for alliteration).

Caribbean Teen Summer Camps We're proud to be celebrating our 35th year this summer! Sail Caribbean has been an amazing part of my life over all these years and I feel most fortunate to have been a part of this adventure. What has made Sail Caribbean successful throughout this journey continues today — young adults accepting challenges and responsibilities, and outstanding staff sharing their knowledge and skills — while all are having the time of their lives. Our core values remain strong: respect for one another, respect for the environment, and a belief that together people can achieve great things. We teach essential life skills as our students navigate through their teenage years: Leadership.

Airbnb.com: Necessity Begets Creativity Three years ago, Brian Chesky had just arrived in San Francisco with not much more than a memory foam mattress and a dwindling bank account. He had two problems: no job, and no money to make rent. Today, Chesky lives exclusively in mansions, tepees, apartments, and castles. Live In The South Of France and Get Paid 500 Euro/Month If you think that the spectacular South Of France is limited to the likes of celebrities and the super rich, then for the most part, you would be right.

How a UK startup fixed the Airbnb calendar availability problem without being asked One common theme when technical discussions turn to Person-to-Person (P2P) marketplaces is the concept of availability control. For example, the recently loaded AirBnB has individuals with a room or property which it then promotes and sells to individual travellers. One accusation aimed at these P2P sites is that individuals (on the supply side), generally, are not so great at keeping availability calendars correct. The challenge is magnified when the same property is on multiple listing sites.

Hi Gear Summit 350 Sleeping Bag A great choice for winter or for those who really feel the cold weather, the Hi Gear Summit 350 is a 4 season synthetic bag that has all the features you need without the pricetag to match. Twin layers of 350g/m2 hollow fibre insulation trap your body heat and insulate you from the cold, while the zip and collar baffles help to prevent any of that precious warmth leaking away. If you get too hot the zip can be locked in any position to allow controlled ventilation.
