If you are looking for some traveling and adventuring without breaking the bank, you are in the right place. The key is to do some research and explore how you can travel as cost-effectively as possible. Let’s do just that.
Plan What & How You Will Eat
Long story short – the less prepared food you buy, the better.
Bring along a camp stove and cook those easy, cheap but delicious meals and pastas on a rest stop, or pack some peanut butter and crackers in order to avoid those overpriced snacks found at the gas stations.
Make sure you bring energy bars as they will hold you over and make an excellent and tasty diversion when you feel like buying food at an expensive restaurant.
This should buy you enough time so you later visit a grocery store and buy much cheaper food that you can prepare yourself.
Making Money On The Road
Volunteering is a great opportunity to save some money while travelling. Some orphanage or an animal refuge place would be a great place to start looking for a job since they almost always need help, plus you might also have free meals.
Farms also almost always need help, so make sure you visit the websites that list farms and farm work opportunities at your destination. Call in advance, make arrangements and earn some cash, food and lodging.
