How You Can (Nearly) Travel Forever

9. Work Remotely

Many people don’t realize that they don’t have to quit their jobs to explore the world; they can just do it remotely. The idea here is very similar to finding jobs online, but instead of looking for a new company, you just do what you’re already doing digitally.

It’s not always that easy to convince your boss to work remotely. You should try to do it progressively, working one or two days from home and ensuring your productivity remains the same or higher. If you can prove you can work remotely in an efficient way, there’s no reason for your boss to deny your request.

10. Cook Your Own Meals

In many Asian countries it’s actually cheaper to eat out than to cook your own meals; however, it tends to be mainly street food. If you’re looking for healthier or Western food, you’re probably going to pay a lot more.

In developed countries, it’s generally expensive to dine out. So, if you take the time to learn a few simple, yet healthy recipes, you’ll be surprised by how much money you can save in the long run, which can be used to extend your trip.

11. Do Some Hitchhiking

Did you know there are people who travel around the world without paying for any transportation? They literally trust in the generosity of people and hitchhike across entire countries.

Although it might not be the most reliable approach (imagine waiting hours for a ride?), it’s definitely the cheapest way. Make sure you research about your destination, especially if it’s considered dangerous, and then get ready to meet people willing to help you with your journey.

Mini Guide to Indonesia

Indonesia is the largest archipelago in the world with just over 17,000 islands. It has a population of roughly 261 million people, though over half lives on the island of Java. The nation has a long trading history with other Asian countries and has also been invaded by the Dutch and English Empires. Indonesia is therefore a melting pot of cultures with the largest Muslim population in the world, but also with strong influences from Hinduism and Buddhism, particularly in Bali. It’s also a nature lover’s paradise, with plenty of fauna, volcanoes, beaches, and diving sites.
