How Broke British Author Paul Carr Lives In Luxury Hotels Instead Of His London Apartment (VIDEO)

Broke British author Paul Carr gave up his dumpy London flat for a life of luxury in the best hotels around the world. How did he do it? A combination of a strong British pound, a weak dollar and some clever uses of Internet travel sites. Watch for his favorites, his failures, the cities he loves and those he won't be returning to any time soon.

Carr has written the book, "The Upgrade: A Cautionary Tale of a Life Without Reservations," on his adventures. He has blogged for HuffPost and writes for TechCrunch, which is also owned by AOL.
