Since I work directly from the internet, long term traveling cost me as much as or even less than living in one location. I’ll demonstrate why traveling is not as expensive as you think.
Saving on Traveling
1. I stay at hostels, campsites, and couch surfing. In total this usually equates to less than $600 a month in rent, something I would spend at home if I had an apartment,
2. Traveling – Since I don’t own a car, that saves on insurance costs. Public transportation is widely available in most majjor cities.
3. Eating – I can still cook my own food even while traveling. You get a much wider selection of food to travel as you travel.
4. Entertainment – A new city itself is entertainment in its own. It only gets expensive when trying to go into popular places like the Louvre, Westminister Abbey, etc…
Traveling doesn’t have to be expensive. As long as you don’t stay in fancy hotels, or fly in luxury, the backpackers life can be as cheap as living at home.
