Win a FREE One-Year Home Exchange Membership!

If you have read our book or are a follower of this blog or Facebook page, you likely know that one of our favorite ways to travel for free is by doing home exchanges.

Really, it’s the best of all worlds – you get FREE accommodations by swapping homes when you travel, but you also have the opportunity to stay in some really cool houses, apartments, even unusual homes like houseboats or lighthouses or Airstream trailers. With  amenities like kitchens that let you save even more money by fixing meals at home. And, you get to stay and experience the place like a local, in a neighborhood, rather than a generic hotel.

By far our favorite website for swapping places is, which we have used for almost all of our exchanges. And now, it’s your chance to WIN a FREE one year membership to!

About Shelley Seale

I'm Shelley, a journeyer and learner of the world, freelance journalist and author, yoga chick and dog lover. I pound the keyboard from home barefoot every day, and while my boss is demanding she also occasionally lets me have the early afternoon cocktail. I think not going into an office or collecting corporate paychecks are very good ideas, though not always profitable. I have written for National Geographic, USA Today, The Guardian, Texas Monthly and CNN, among others. Neither the New York Times nor Johnny Depp have answered my letters yet. I love yoga, indie movies, wine, and books, though not necessarily in that order. I believe in karma. Mean people suck. If I could have any dream job I would like to be a superhero. I have performed a catch on the flying trapeze, boarded down a live volcano and was once robbed by a monkey in Nepal. But, I don't know how to whistle. My mantra is "travel with a purpose."

    I exchanged my home in Budapest with someone else’s home in Palm Springs, and it worked out fantastic for the both of us.
