How You Can (Nearly) Travel Forever

3. Travel to Cheap Countries

It’s not uncommon to find long-term travelers in Europe or North America, but the vast majority of them live in Southeast Asia and South America. They take advantage of geo-arbitrage, where they earn in a strong currency and spend their money in places with a low cost of living.

When you realize that the amount you spend to travel for a month in Europe is probably the equivalent of traveling for five in Asia, it’s easy to understand why they go there. It’s also a great excuse to escape horrible winters and make the most of the sun.

    4. Work for Accommodation

    Another easy way to save money when you travel is by working for accommodation. There are several platforms such as Workaway and HelpX, where you work for about 20 or 30 hours a week, and get a bed in return (sometimes even board!).

    If you like the idea of learning about permaculture and working on farms, you could apply for the WWOOF platform and do just that. It’s also possible to do some housesitting, where you stay in other people’s houses taking care of their pets while they are away.

    5. Stick to the Budget

    Whether you have a lot of money saved or a stable income, it’s important to figure out a budget and stick to it. More often than not, new travelers get excited about their higher purchasing power, spend too much, and blow their budget.

    What you want to do is create a monthly or weekly budget, then research your next destination and see if it’ll be over or under budget. Remember that you can always travel frugally for a few weeks and then splurge at a nice luxurious resort without breaking the bank.
