At a lot of hostels you can finagle a free nights sleep by finding an open bed. Like stay there for a night or two legitimately, so you wont look suspicious, and then simply find a new bed each night. Obviously this works best if you know someone in the room. Or at hostels with large outdoor lougning areas you can simply sleep on the lounge chairs or hammocks, or in the bushes. Only really recommended in hot, humid climes. I hate paying for accomodation too, and it just takes a little creativity to get around it. You just need a place to leave your stuff and most hostels have free luggage storage.

Really? How do you get on the roofs?

if it's a flat roof there is always a ladder on the side. You just got to jump a bit to grab the bottom rung.

Who remembers the Tick? you guys are insane, another good place to crash is the beach, I think it's the best place you can sleep for free.

because i am awesome thats why

actually, i only stayed with her for two nights
the most recent two nights and tonight are being spent with her


and then i fly to florida tomorrow at 3pm i should land around land at 4 something i think, but don,t quote me on that, i may be meeting another girl from couchsurfing.com once i land and she will show me around and stuff, or i may just be walking around looking lost till i find a job. i should have a cell phone sometime in the next few days

and nope i didnt get back anything i lost, not my wallet, my hat, or my sanity


but back on topic, i will be camping out off and on over the course of the next few days, i will try to get pics, or write "courtland's guide ot urban camping for cheap bastards"

and me sitting in the park for good measure

Hey! I want to read that guide! Court, where do you get the balls to camp in random places? I'd be so scared someone would come along and rape/rob me..... but then that is why I want to do it... gotta get over the fears!

(Sorry about this Court but I have to)
Who would want to rape Court?
and getting robbed? Hmmm. . . He already learned!

Naw but yeah Court has massive guts (not sayi9ng that he is fat or anything but if I would've used the other term it would've sound aweully gay)

Dude Court are you hitting Miami?

Brookers - even if Barcelona-Sants were open 24/7, you would NOT want to sleep there. It's the pickpocketing capital in what could arguably be the pickpocketing capital of Europe

Interesting thing about the Netherlands - techincally, all unenclosed property (front yards, back yards, etc.) are considered public, so by the letter of the law, you're allowed to sleep/camp on them... of course, it's considered proper etiquette to ask/notify the owners. Then again, unless you're out in the countryside, you'll be hard pressed to find anyone with a yard!
[/b]
My dad got pickpocketed twice in Barcelona and once in Madrid. Fortunately, they only picked off AE travelers' checks and they can be replaced. Always keep money, TCs, Credit Cards, and passport or IDs in separate places on your body.

I strung up my hammock on the second floor of the Brasilia Airport and crashed out. Travelling with my hammock is pretty much my favorite thing ever. As long as there are two trees or two anything I sleep and sleep well.

hehe this is a topic I have some experience in!
Well best of the best is yes the airports, I wanna do a trip around Europe again but next time I wanna sleep in airports everynight, bring a bag and just hit it. Then after that I would say head outdoors, lots of people say go to well light areas, but I would beg to differ I like going to dark bush areas and just go off and hide in the trees this way drunks and theifs arnt gonna see you laying in broad daylight, and in the middle of the night if someone is gonna fleece you they are gonna wait till no one is around to see it anyways. Well basicly there isnt a rule for it sometimes I just walked around and a spot just felt right I was like here is a good palce to crash and I did......The beach is always a favorite of mine, go out and do what everyone dreams about sleeping on the beach!
