#20 Check out our home swaps at  http://www.casaversa.com/ 

When it comes to accommodation being the most expensive component in your travels if you stay at hotels, you might want to look into Airbnb , Wimdu or homeaway to try and find an apartment to rent out, still a nightly rental at a range of prices.

Couchsurfing  is great if you don't mind  staying on someone's couch, it will literally let you stay for free anywhere as someone will be happy to host you.
If however, you keen on having your own space while you travel and still stay for free, you might want to try out Home Swapping. 

A disclaimer - I started casaversa.com CasaVersa - a home exchange website you might want to look into, which in my opinion lets you have the best of both worlds.
In Home swapping you leverage  your existing home and use it to enjoy someone else's space overseas. It's like a direct line to the locals at the place you want to visit. People do it because it saves them their entire accommodation budget and let them have an authentic experience and live like a local.
Imagine you have a good friend just about anywhere you want to visit, and they leave you the key while they are house sitting your place when your away.

Hey Will - Great tutorial! will you do one on docker deployment? I saw you did one on Vagrant already... I'm trying to wrap my head around combining the video you did about scaling with nginx reverse proxy & Node and translate it to a Docker setup in a real world scenario. I think my needs are extremely generic and would solve the final piece in the deployment puzzle for a big part of the node community and you are the perfect guy to do it! I simply want to dockerize the nginx reverse proxy setup you suggested - Let's assume a full realworld setup - you'll need 1 container for nginx, 1+ for your noad app, 1 container for your db & let's say 1 for redis as well. great. now what? will they all reside on the same digitalocean droplet? how will you integrate PM2 into the mix and cron schedule jobs (auto mailers for example or db backups)? all of which are reasonable standard requirements every web app needs in order to deploy in real world.
How do you orchestrate all of these containers? Will you use Docker-Compose or something else? I would love to see someone going through the whole nine yards for once, because no one on the net does. and that's a big value to have. everyone on the net is demonstrating fragmented bits & pieces. It's very hard to clarify a coherent workflow for both development & deployment that would take advantage of  the great modern tools we have available today. Cheers. Ajar.

I completely hear your pain.  One of the reasons I've not done a series of videos on docker yet, is the ecosystem is changing SO FAST...and best practices are still being settled, and I'm still changing my opinion on what I'd recommend every few weeks.

"Docker" is also so vague - It's about as specific as VPS...VPS deployment can mean a billion things, as can Docker.

I can say, docker-machine is a SUPER cool way to manage smaller projects - just provision/connect to a machine and run any containers you want on it - done.

I think my larger-scale production strategy would currently be: have a coreos cluster or use a PaaS, have a service discovery service running, create an nginx image that takes 2 env variables: service name and port.  It would listen for when that instances of that service join/leave and reloads itself.  Then, I'd just run as many instances of the service as I want to, with restart policy in place, so that way I don't need to worry about PM2.  I'd let New Relic or something monitor the instances for me.

I'd also DEFINITELY have a dedicated data volume container that the DB's store data on, so the DB containers are disposable.

For local workflow, I'd use docker-compose.

But, for the record, I'm still shifting strategy with Docker every few weeks just like a lot of the community.  It's just so stinking new.
