Budget Travel Resources Guide

Want to travel the world on a budget? After 10 years of thrifty nomadic living around the planet, I’ve put together a few world travel resources that should help you out. This page is an attempt to organize & share my best tips. I know how confusing it can be in the beginning. There was a time when budget travel was new for me too!

This travel resource page is regularly updated to help you plan your next international travel adventure.
