I’ve heard countless stories of people traveling (often through developed countries) on very small amounts. I’ve even heard of a family travelling the globe on only $25k per year. And while it sounds great in theory, once you hit the road, you realise it’s not so easy.
Like most goals, the key to sticking to a travel budget is finding a method that’s unobtrusive, so you actually stick to it.
Doing so will ensure more travel, more fun, less worry, less work, and returning home later (if ever).
