    Love the video! It is amazing to see and hear you in person! I wanted to ask though do you really not pre book? Aren’t you worried about places being full or not being able to find anywhere?

    • Thank you Joanne, and no I really don’t. I started travelling when LP was still the bible and all these pre booking sites didn’t exist! So I still use that experience now, and in over 15 years of travel I can count on one hand the amount of places I have researched beforehand and have turned up to find them full. And I would still have a finger to spare! And all I did then was walk next door or down the road to the next guesthouse or hostel which wasn’t in the guidebook and had loads of beds free. 🙂
