Prepare a Nest Egg

Move home or move in with friends. Pack lunch. Make your own coffee. Buy clothes at thrift stores. Sell some of your possessions. Ask for AirBnB or Visa gift cards as birthday and holiday presents. Little things add up.

Depending on how thrifty and creative you travel, your operating fund can be as little as $200 a month. We were able to travel to five countries in six months on this travel budget.

List Curiosities and Pinpoint Travel Passions

You don't want to go off gallivanting the world without a cause or reason, or you might just end up more “lost” than when you started. Choose what you love or what you are interested in learning and travel for it: be it bicycling, organic farming, horses, photography, food, permaculture, aquaponics, or painting.

You can’t imagine what a world is out there waiting for you to jump right in. Before we embarked on our journey, we made a list of the activities we wanted to participate in from foraging for wild mushrooms to picking organic olives for oil to harvesting cabbage and making kimchi. When we took a step back and looked at our list, everything had to do with learning how to farm and how to make traditional foods. From then on, this became our dream list which helped us navigate our journey.
