Travel like a BO$S, don’t spend like one

BallinonaBudgetI’ve learned alot of traveling lessons the hard way. And by the hard way, I mean the expensive and/or extremely frustrating way. If I can help someone avoid these mistakes, then it was worth it.

Also, just because someone has traveled to alot of countries doesn’t make them a traveler. Taking cabs, staying in hotels, and going on pre-planned tours is “nice”, if you have the money. But then you miss out on the real experience of the country you are visiting.

Wherever I go, I live like a local. I rent a room in a local person’s house, take public transit, go grocery shopping, and eat at hole-in-the-walls where they don’t speak English. Because of this, I’ve been able to travel for 3 months on what many people spend on a 2 week vacation.

So now I pass this wisdom on to you, my little buttercups. Stay connected, travel, navigate, eat, and live without emptying your bank account.

Let’s hear it for living that champagne lifestyle on a boxed wine budget!
