17-18 months, from may 2004 to sept. 2005, although I emptied the bag out & filled it again quite a few times. My travels took me to a great number of places.... maybe 21 countries or so?

Ain't no livin' like bag-livin'!

I lived Monday to Friday in the Queen Elizabeth in Montreal for 5 1/2 months. Longest hotel stint for sure. Congrats on the move!

I urban camped when i moved into my loft at Carlaw for almost 2 months while we were building it. Technically I'm living out of a bag right now with all of my 'things' in storage in another country.

10 months living out of backpack travelling 'round the world (Europe, Africa, SEA, Australia, NZ).

The travelling was amazing but at the same time it was torture for a gal who loves her shoes and clothes!!

Left for BC in 96' with a backpack and ski's. Returned in 98' same backpack n' ski's. Bag living and couch surfing for 2 years was fun :D

Did it for Nov 04 - Feb 05 when I moved to Toronto. Bag living is overrated. Especially when work attire was damn conservative (don't worry.. no armani or canali).

6 months in Europe.

I think I missed not having a fridge more than a closet. You forget how nice it is to be able to just grab a snack without having to go to a store.

4 months, a long time ago, in B.C. and Calgary.

BUT: I had my own ground zero with family in the Okanagan Valley, and my backpacks were too heavy to carry (should of had hat boxes and an entourage for my stuff).

Tip: If you're staying in one place for awhile, try not to collect books and stuff. Less is more, for sure.

I gave it a go, but I'm not a girl scout traveller.

How did you guys afford such long stints away from home without jobs? How much did it cost per week / month?
