FINDING THE MONEY IS SIMPLY A MATTER OF PRIORITIES.
Many people who “can’t afford a trip” could sell their car and travel for two years. A friend who sits on $3000 worth of living room furniture marvels at our ability to come up with the money to travel. A relative who hasn’t taken a vacation in twenty years wonders at my frequent “disappearing acts”.
WE FEEL WE CAN'T AFFORD NOT TO TRAVEL.
So we keep our overhead to a minimum and spend our free time and money roaming the world.
You can travel through most of the world for $20/day, excluding plane fares – but we’ve got ways around that too. A tight budget forces you to travel like a local, meeting and communicating with beautiful strangers you’d never otherwise meet but now find yourself sharing a meal or a bed or a bus ride with, instead of relying on service with a purchased smile.
MAKE NO MISTAKE, WE'RE NOT GOING WITHOUT... WE VALUE OUR SLEEP WAY TOO MUCH FOR THAT.
We never sacrifice sleep, nutrition, safety or cleanliness in the name of budget. We enjoy – and prefer—the local alternatives to expensive hotels and restaurants. We travel better because – not in spite of – our tight budgets. I mean, would you find this guy on your first class AC charter bus (his name was Nariz, by the way)? I don't think so.
