Introducing the Art of Budget Travel
If you want to 'see the world' there are three essentials to any travel budget (below). 1 and 2 will keep you alive. 3 will allow you to see the world.
1) You need somewhere to sleep.
2) You need to eat and drink.
3) You need a way of getting from where you are to where you want to be.
It is possible to travel the world spending only on these things and soaking up everywhere you visit. Naturally there will be some activities you may want to do and will need to pay for, but if you are travelling on a budget these areas will be your three main expenses so we will look at ways of keeping the costs down to a bare minimum.
As such our guide to seeing the world on a budget is divided into three sections:
How to Sleep for Cheap
This section offers you top tips on finding somewhere to crash while your wandering the planet. It is actually not too difficult to find budget or even free beds while you travel.
How to Eat/Drink for Cheap
Eating/drinking costs are pretty hard to avoid unless you happen to be a practising monk or have a severe eating disorder. Just like in your own country food/drink prices vary drastically depending on where you shop/eat/drink so it's really a case of being able to know where you're likely to find the best value.
How to Travel from A to B for Cheap
Contemplating how you are going to get from where you are to where you want to go next is never too far from the mind of anyone living the backpacking lifestyle. Here we look at ways to keep transport costs too a minimum.
