Tips from Frugalville

Like all great things, the Frugal Traveler’s (Matt Gross) 13 week European adventure (16 countries in 13 weeks on 100 Euros a day) has come to an end. It’s all recapped in Lessons From the Frugal Grand Tour (my favorite tips involve “living like the locals” and “making yourself useful”). Now I’m think my next trip may just have to involve WWOOFing [World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms]. There’s a network all over the world where you can pay a minimal fee (around $15/day) to work on a farm, and in exchange get free lodging and meals (and in the case of Gross, views of the French countryside and to beefed up French skills!). There are tons more great tips and resources, so check out the full article here.
