B & B's, Another Affordable Way To Go

Besides Home Exchange or the Affordable Travel Club, there is another wonderful way to explore the world the affordable way:  The Bed and Breakfast way.  Some of our most memorable vacations have been at B&B's in France, Scotland and Australia.  But these are not the only possibilities. At this very moment, we are exploring B&B possibilities in India, Cambodia and Viet Nam.   Just one word of advice:  do your planning and exploring early.  Unless you book a B&B at least 9 months to a year in advance, the best locations are gone.  But it's worth the effort.  The early bird catches the worm and there are some incredible worms worth catching out there!  The internet is a wonderful resource and most B&B's have excellent websites, allowing you even to select a particular room with that special view.

  1. Dear Yawngie,
    Thanks for visiting my page and leaving the birthday greetings.

    B+B is an excellent way of meeting local people, wherever you go; much preferable to staying in expensive and impersonal hotels.

    I'll be interested to hear if and when you decide to try it in India.
