was about how someone who doesn’t work in travel can actually afford to
travel. ―What can they do?‖ they asked me.
Since this question comes up so often, I like to constantly remind people of thisfact: You do not need to be rich to travel.
Let’s repeat that.
You do not need to be rich to travel.
I sure wasn’t. I had an administrative job making $30,000 a year before I left formy first trip. That’s a pretty average entry wage for Boston.
Yet I managed to save enough to travel the world. How? I made it a priority. If travel is not a priority for you, you will always find some other things to spend
money on and you’ll never have ―enough‖ money to travel. I never have enough
money to go shopping or buy a new electronic gadget because I spend my money
on travel, so there isn’t much left over for non
-priority expenses. Everything I dois focused on having more money for travel (and other things I love like sushi,movies, and nice dinners)! What is your savings priority? Is it travel? If it
travel, what is keeping you fromsaving money? What are you spending it on? A few months ago, I wrote about the importance of writing out your expenses andthen cutting them to save money for your trip. I offered 20 tips on how to do so
debt and yet using those tips managed to save over $20,000 dollars for my initialtrip around the world.
