I love to travel. Luckily, so does Gabriel. Besides the fact that we love marketing and it’s in our wheelhouse, we chose our self-employed lifestyle due to our love for exploring. We wanted to be able to pick up and go. However, when I tell people about our plans, there are a couple reactions I get. The number one reaction is, “wow…do it while you’re young.” The second reaction is almost always about money. How did you save? How can you afford that?
That reaction suggests that everyone who travels has a lot of money, which is certainly not the case. In fact, the friends I’ve met abroad pretty much all live on a tight budget. Most of the reason for that is because they want to travel more.
Everyone should travel. It has been one of the greatest joys of my life. I’ve learned so much through experiencing and immersing myself in different cultures. So, I’ve put together 17 travel tips that will help you save money before and during your next adventure.
