The best way to fully experience travelling abroad is to live in a non-touristic area, in a private rent accommodation rather than in often expensive hotels. Every time I have been traveling to Spain, I choose to stay among the locals because I want to get a real feel about Catalonia and observe people’s everyday lives. That way, I have met many fascinating Spaniards and often despite the language barrier we ended up finding a common way of communication…so called tequila 😉
For some, booking a private short-term accommodation can be associated with a risky and stressful way of travelling. However, there are ways of overcoming those fears. The best way to book a private rent lodgings is through Roomorama.com . This online service connects travellers and people renting out their flats and apartments from all over the world. It is one hundred percent secure. Travellers are given an opportunity to directly interact with the property owns before the booking is made. What is more, the flats offered on the Roomorama have been ranked by their customers providing a reassurance of the quality of the flat. Most importantly, the website offers short term lets in 328 cities across the world so no matter the destination, one can find an accommodation that suits their expectations.
I am planning visiting Paris soon and booking a flat in the city centre on Roomorama. I will definitely keep you posted on my experiences with them.
