I'm a writer living in Broolyn, NY. My favorite way to travel is house swapping. I really think it's the best way to go--there are plenty of great hotels, etc,. but on my budget and my style (trying to blend in with the locals) my preference is to have all the comforts of home--just in someone else's home!
