Rent an apartment – International travel tip

As parents of 3 young children, rental apartments have become our favorite lodging when traveling.

Most country’s tourist boards maintain lists of rental apartments, and one can check reviews of the “chosen” apartment from the internet.

We visit the local butcher and purchase meals to finish at the apartment. The farmer’s market becomes much more fun when you get to take the produce “home” to cook locals will always tell you the best way to prepare it. Further, restaurants will often provide you take-out, so the romantic meal can still be had while the children sleep in bed.

Not only are rental apartments budget-friendly, they offer you the chance to “live like a local” while you’re visiting the destination.
