Accommodations

Kudos to Flashpacking Barbie for compiling the following list of names/locations of all our accommodations that we shacked up at during our RTW (Round The World) “Flashpacking” journey.

Simply scroll down and click on the accommodation name that appears in RED.  This will direct you to the individual properties.  The accommodations appear in order, starting from the beginning of our journey in September 2015.

As you can see below, we began to stay in more Airbnb’s once we left Southeast Asia.  We make every effort to stay in Airbnb’s whenever possible as they provide the absolute best local living experience.  Airbnb’s are our preferred style of accommodation as the houses/apartments offer a full set of amenities similar to living at home.
