Going back to the question I get asked the most, how I can afford to travel… I’m going to reveal how I plan my trips. My trips aren’t typically anything fancy and luxury, but budget travel means more adventure which is what I’m looking for. You have to put yourself in unfamiliar situations in order to get to know yourself, to see how you can adapt. At the end, I always walk away proud of myself that I was able to make it happen. That I’m stronger than I thought.
The truth is, I don’t blow all my money traveling. I have goals that I’m saving up for as well. I actually save quite a bit in comparisons to others around me. I just choose to travel ‘smarter’ as I like to call it. See… for me, I rather take 10 budget trips a year rather than taking 2 luxury trip a year. I worked full time, Monday-Friday, and I still managed to take at least 10 trips a year. I would just extend every long weekend by a couple of days, or I would leave straight from work to go catch a flight, or I even walked in with my luggage to work once in the morning! A weekend warrior I like to call it.
