HOW WE TRADED OUR SKILL TO STAY IN AMAZING PLACES – OUR #1 TRAVEL TIP

by | 2019 | The Lills, Travel

Before heading out on our cross country adventure in our VW bus, we learned the power of bartering. We had developed skills (web, graphic, photo, video) that allowed us to trade for things we wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford.

Over the years, we were amazed by the variety of things we were able to acquire and experience through trade. Here are just some of the fun things we bartered for:

  • RENT
  • HOTEL ROOMS
  • AIRPLANE TICKETS
  • MARKETING MATERIALS
  • DENTAL WORK
  • FRESH WEEKLY VEGETABLES
  • SPA TREATMENTS
  • DRIVE-IN MOVIE THEATER TICKETS & CONCESSIONS
  • ORGANIC MICROGREENS
  • BAKED GOODS
  • HAIR CARE
  • VETERINARY CARE
  • JETSKIING
  • HOT AIR BALLOON RIDE
  • CABIN RENTAL
  • HORSEBACK RIDING ON THE BEACH
  • BIRTHDAY DINNER
  • VW BUS REPAIRS
  • CUSTOM CABINETRY FOR OUR VW BUS
  • FOOD FROM TOP LOCAL RESTAURANTS
  • STAYING AT BEAUTIFUL HOMES IN SOUTH CAROLINA, NORTH CAROLINA, PUERTO RICO, LOUISIANA, TEXAS, NEW MEXICO, COLORADO & CALIFORNIA

All we do is send our requests out to the universe and ask. Then we let it go and wait for the right “yes!” See our video below, about staying for free in amazing places!
