In this episode of the podcast, we talked about accommodation while living abroad. A common question on people's minds when we tell them that we travel and live abroad is "Where do you live?" Ha! As if we live in a cave or something. Quite the contrary! We've lived in various types of places.

We talked about accommodation topics, such as:

  • How we found all of our apartments while living abroad
  • A hotel room-style apartment with no kitchen in Thailand, where we lived for six months
  • The (impossibly cheap) price of living there and how we fed ourselves without a kitchen
  • Our neighboring building, which was a brothel, and how it wasn't as creepy as you may think
  • Actually, it was a little creepy, since our apartment building was affiliated with them and "rented out" rooms to the "employees!"
  • The few stray and lovable dogs we had living on the bottom floor of the building
  • Living in San Jose, California-- its perks and the opposite
  • Our FREE spacious 3-bedroom apartment in South Korea
  • The modern apartment we had in Korea, filled with heated floors and a computer system for visitors, calling for emergency help, and more
  • Our studio apartment in Vietnam, complete with cockroaches, a tiny stove, and an incompetent landlord
  • Our expensive and tiny 1-bedroom apartment in Osaka, Japan
  • Sleeping on mats laid out on the floor of the room that doubled as our bedroom and living room
  • How we found this apartment

And so much more!
