Velowiki : Free Accommodation Around the World For many people who enjoy travelling, accommodation is a continual and draining financial concern. Everyone has their own budget and if you are looking for luxurious and expensive hotels, I advise you look elsewhere. This page concerns travellers who are concerned with the ultimate in budget travel, free accommodation. If you are prepared to broaden your mind and look away from the typical hotel / hostel beds that many of us are used to, you will see that there is a great big world of beds available to you for very little financial commitment. Sleeping at someone’s house, free-camping, housesitting, and volunteering are all perfect examples of how you can stay somewhere for free. Testament to this, I recently spent five months hitchhiking through 24 different countries in Europe and only paid for accommodation in four towns (mainly to meet friends on holiday). The following sleeping options are only overviews, but I hope that they can help you to travel more, for less. Pros and Cons

Hitchwiki: the Hitchhiker's guide to Hitchhiking David Graeber on MAUSS Have you noticed how there aren't any new French intellectuals any more? There was a veritable flood in the late '70s and early '80s: Derrida, Foucault, Baudrillard, Kristeva, Lyotard, de Certeau ... but there has been almost no one since. Trendy academics and intellectual hipsters have been forced to endlessly recycle theories now 20 or 30 years old, or turn to countries like Italy or even Slovenia for dazzling meta-theory. There are a lot of reasons for this. Of course this in itself is hardly going to faze the sort of Americans who read Deleuze and Guattari. As a result, some of the most interesting scholars in France today you never hear about at all. A word of background. By all accounts, though, Mauss was never taken completely seriously in his role of heir apparent; a man of extraordinary erudition (he knew at least a dozen languages, including Sanskrit, Maori and classical Arabic), he still, somehow, lacked the gravity expected of a grand professeur.
