Lodging options for less than $70/night!

Lodging can be one of the biggest expenses while on vacation. Luck for us, Yahoo! Finance’s Farnoosh Torabi spoke with Laura Michonski of Budget Travel to score tips on finding cheap lodging.

Here are a few of Laura’s favorite lodging options – all for less than $70 per night!

HotelTonight – an app downloaded to your smartphone that will help you search last minute deals for the same day.

CouchSurfing – a website that connects travelers with hosts offering a free place to crash.

ConTENTment Camping – a service that will set up a posh tent (complete with furniture), often near popular theme parks or music festival grounds.

On a budget, retirees sell it all to travel the world – you can too!

Tim and Lynne Martin are two retirees with a truly inspiring story. Last year, they sold nearly all of their possessions – including their home – and set out to see the world on a limited budget.

Lynne’s master plans have already brought the couple to several European countries. Although this may sound like a hectic lifestyle for retirees, Lynne typically books an apartment for a month or two at a time, allowing them to enjoy a leisurely stay and truly discover the destination like locals. (See my previous post on AirBnB apartment rentals here).

In this article, Lynne shares the ins-and-outs of their atypical retirement, including how they afford their adventurous lifestyle on a small budget.

Thanks to The Wall Street Journal, Yahoo! Finance and Lynne Martin for sharing this article.
