And if you’re going to roam the world, it would be extra nice to do it on a budget. For one, when you learn to travel cheap, you get to focus on the small things you take for granted. Opting out on pricey airfares and going onboard trains or buses allows you to admire new terrains and enjoy the simple pleasantries in life close up.
This blog is one with you on this. I will be providing you tips on how to ditch pricey trips for more affordable ones, without you missing out on any experiences.
You get to taste more exotic cuisines.
Being on a budget means giving up some indulgences that you don’t really need. In this blog, I will tackle the importance of trading luxury meals for food that enrich the body, as well as the spirit. I’ll let you in on curbside cuisines. The goal is to give advice on the tasty treats you won’t find in posh restaurants. Don’t get me wrong as fine dining is great.

You get to be more creative.
