How to travel without a good budget

I often receive messages from people asking me how I travel so much without spending a fortune. Well, if you're used to travel you can find a lot of ways to save your money and have a good time. For those of you who don't know, I have a job, so I don't travel without money. But believe me if I say that sometimes I spend less when I travel than when I stay at home.

I show you how:

1) Stay as long as you can. I know, it's weird and it sounds meaningless, but If you stay for three days you'll probably spend the same amount of money you could spend in three weeks. It happens because you are in hurry, you don't have time to decide properly, you don't have time to wait the free entrance day in a museum, or you don't have time to walk trough the city so you decide to take a taxi.

2) Hitchhiking. Yes I know, probably you're scared to wait on a highway and get on a car with a stranger. But believe me, it's not so risky and you'll probably meet nice people. Or strange people. Sometimes very strange people. But it's ok. Anyway, every country has a different approach to hitchhikers, if you need informations about it you can use this platform . Just browse a country or a city and you'll have all the information you need to start an hitchhiking trip (where to go, how to act, everything!)

3) Are you hungry?

4) Go with locals, they know where to eat and what you should see. If you're alone you can find informations here:

5) Couchsurfing. If you don't want to spend money for hotels or AirBnb you can find a good accommodation on this platform, for free: It's nice because you can meet locals and start friendships.

6) Busking. You're broke but you have a talent? Or you're just broke but your uncle taught you how to play Singin' in the Rain with a straw and a clip? Well... you can do it in front of a public and ask for money with a hat! Check out how, where, and when. You can do it here:

7) Know where are you going. If you want to know the cost of living in a city you can use this platform: (you can also compare two different cities).

Anyway... If you have to go to Rome, Barcelona, Budapest and a bunch of other cities in Europe, drop me a line here. I will help you!
