City-Hopping in the USA and Europe
January 4, 2010 7:58 PM Subscribe
I'm wanting to spend a month or so in each of some of the coolest cities of the USA/Europe. I've got a full-time work-from-anywhere-there's-wi-fi job that'll keep me going but still want to keep expenses down. Done something similar? What was your best way to find lodgings?

I've got a stalwart car but definitely don't want to live out of it. I'm planning/hoping to get into grad school this fall, so the adventure will only last six or seven months.
If you have any advice on itineraries (San Francisco, Portland, Chicago, and Boston are on my list, but otherwise I'm looking for ideas), or ways to find lodging arrangements (house-sitting joints?), I'd love to hear it. Is the old craigslist the best way?
Especially if any US citizens have done this in Europe, I'd like to hear how you did it (I know a teensy bit of French).
