Travelling is just expensive! watch

    • Thread Starter

    Don't you find them to be expensive!? I'm having a hard time budgeting without putting a hole in my wallet

    How do you guys budget?

    Expansive, it is. It's also expensive.

    If you want to travel for a long period, try working as you go. Get a TEFL certificate and pick up some English teaching jobs while you are away. My base is in China, where I work as an English teacher, but I get more than 2 months of paid holidays each year, so I save and then travel around Asia. It's much cheaper to live out here and easier to save enough money to travel.

    I also had a friend in England who would work her ass off for 6 months and basically have no social life, then travel for 6 months. Seemed to work well!
Do I go to The Streets tomorrow night?
