One of the things I enjoy most about traveling is getting that ‘local experience’. It’s the time when you see a place through a local’s eyes; a glimpse of what it might be like to live there albeit without the drudgery of having to work. Staying with a friend is a great way to do this, and also lets you free up money that would be spent on a hotel to have some fun with.

Here are my tips to help you get invited back:

  1. Always leave a bottle of wine, a gift, or at least a handwritten thank you note.
  2. Avoid lengthy stays. As my aunt Patricia used to tell me “guests are like fish Kyle. Anything longer than three or four days and they start to smell bad”.
  3. Clean the kitchen or stack/unstack the dishwasher.
