It's the way of the world to slog at a 9 to 5 job and save just enough to travel the world. But we're constantly hunting for travellers doing it differently.

An anonymous female traveller's hack on Airbnb has taken the travel community by storm.

The travelette has chosen to maintain her anonymity and is referred to by the name 'Katrina'. Renting out her apartment in California, she made a whopping $60K in one year and funded her travels around the world.

Interestingly, her genius ways are applicable. For You. And for me.

Her 1100 sq ft condo has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. In her interesting revelation, she told how after the $30K expenditure on mortgage, maintenance and taxes, she was left with another $30K she used to fund her travels.  Airbnb-ing her way out, she calls herself the ultimate 'financial projection and budget ninja'.

A host from Mumbai, Soraya uses the money she makes on Airbnb to visit her daughter who's studying in London. If you think managing finances by renting out an apartment is too far-fetched an idea, these ladies can make you think otherwise. On the other end of the world, Katrina is busy preparing another checklist for the next year.
